      Im not sure if anyone alse wrote this, y
      you mentioned it being dry so maybe this could help too.

      I have found a terarium to work for starting seeds,
      any aqarium sealed I cut A piece of cardboard, ,
      and line it with a platic garbage bag
      to hold in the humidity while they are in pots.
      (Im not sure you you need to,
      but I even add water out side the pots)

      but I even use a plasic Grocery bag
      puffed out not wrapped up for building up humidity.

      I have even went as far as fermenting wine inside the aquarium.
      (In a glass gallon size jar)

      Uncovering it at night IS what I do,
      I also use soil thats not to pasty,
      (it acts different in pots)
      Some decaying leaf matter from a forest floor may be useful.
