How do I stop 5 inch balloons popping?

Deco Bubble Filled with 5-inch Balloons [Source: balloons.com.au]
Hello. I have been in the industry for a few years now and I have never had this problem so looking for advice!
Once I have filled a deco bubble with mini balloons and inflated. Some of the mini balloons are popping ???!?!?!
Has anyone had this problem? If so, how do I stop this happening?
I haven't heard about this happening before, but here are 3 possible reasons why the 5-inch balloons might be popping:
#1: You were simply unlucky and purchased a batch of poor quality 5-inch balloons.
#2: After inflating the balloons, the temperature in the environment around the deco bubble changed. In other words, it got warmer and the 5-inch balloons expanded.
#3: You over-inflated the 5-inch balloons (but as you said you've been in the balloon business for some time now, I doubt that this is the reason).
I hope this helps. Let us know if you could solve the problem!
P.S. Sue Bowler has a comprehensive page about using bubble balloons, with videos.
