Orbeez as a substrate additive.

The bottom layer tub and the mixed tub are fine but the middle layer tub died off for some reason.
The myc is starting to grow around them in places, I hope it does it all along the bottom.

Perhaps a verm layer on top of the orbeez to act as a buffer for the increased moisture the orbeez provide? Or maybe something else that can moderate the extra moisture?
The idea you have feels right with these, you just need to find a path to it.
If it is possible I believe you can sort it out!

Maybe some dry verm mixed in or in a layer or maybe only hydrating the oebeez to half capicity are the 2 best ideas i have come up with so far, I'm open to suggestions.

Do you have any of the Orbeeze left in dry form? You could grind them up much finer to better mix with the substrate. Think in terms of a small pinch per quart of substrate. IDK what polymer yours is but the stuff I have, a pinch will literally hold over a cup and a half of water.
