What about just putting the trim back in the soil? recycling at its finest unless there is some bad juju associated with that. Actually, that stuff ain't green...

First, do you use cloth pots? I think you meant "wet" and I think that is what the little buggers love.

Yeah I did mean wet and I use plastic buckets . There are a few that are not drinking ( soil is not draining ).
They are not benefiting from heat as there is only approx 50w white LED down lights in with them and I've not had much sun outside . I Just don't feed them as much and try to keep them as warm as possible.

If you use a bucket, drill more holes, can't hurt. A pic and more info, and people smarter than me here can help.

Easy as throwing some fresh cut grass into your mix. Make sure it is free of pet droppings though. It will heat it right up
I've seen hay bails steaming, and even catch fire from being rolled too wet. All that stored up energy has to go somewhere.
I smoked some worms once by throwing in a few handfuls of freshly cut grass, one handful too many I guess. About all I use them for now is for evidence destroyers. Clippings, stems, all that jazz, right in the worm bin. Next year I'll have some great outdoor soil amendment.
