Optimum Mositure Level for Micro-organisms in Soil?

  1. Evening organic growers! I have a question.

    I am using 'a granular innoculant made up of Mycorrhiza, bio-stimulants and over 20 strains of microorganisms' in my soil. There used to be white fuzzy fungus on the soil at the bottom of the pots, so I assumed the stuff was working.

    I recently let the soil dry out quite a lot, the plants were fine but I am wondering if I have killed off the beneficial microorganisms etc that were in the soil by letting them dry out too much.

    Should I make sure to water slightly more often to keep the medium moist and the microorganisms happy? Are they already dead?

    Also, the innoculant contains nitrogen fixers, could this be the reason one of my plants is showing nitrogen overdose even though I've only been using low dose bloom nutes?

    Any thoughts much appreciated! :smoke:
