Mold anf fungus is part of the decomposition process. Your bucket should have good drainage, and hole on the sides for air circulation.im composting in a 5gallon bucket and the weather is all bipolar some days it's raining some it's hot as hell. anyways yesterday i covered my compost and today i opened it up to air it out and turn it it was hot but their were white fuzzy mold growing at the top. im wondering why this is happening and is it okay?
their are no bugs in it and the compost was hot and still moist. i turned it and gave it some air and covered it again.
here is what my compost is.
all of it is shredded up or small pieces.
2. leaves dried up
3. some wood chips
4. paper no ink of course
5. orange peels
6. tea and coffee grounds
7. started adding some bird seeds used bird seeds of course that were eaten by my birds.
PS- if bad how do i stop it from molding up? i cannot keep it uncovered as it dries out way to fast.
