We often refer to the liquid that you get out of your worm composter as worm tea but technically it’s leachate – the run off from making your worm casts. [more...]
You will soon see if your worm composter is too wet – it looks visibly sodden.
Assuming you are adding your food scraps every couple of days as you lift the moisture mat you will see the worms working just below the surface.
The average family generates 7kg (15lbs) of food waste a week, just for reference.
Worm blankets are made of a water-absorbing, air-permeable and light blocking fabric.
You can compost a lot more in Subpod than in other worm farm systems.
No it shouldn’t. Subpod’s built-in ventilation panels have small holes that keep out bugs, pests and rodents, whilst allowing air to flow in. Just make sure the ‘worm holes’ in the sides of the Subpod are covered with soil so nothing can sneak in.
Ants are attracted to dry conditions, so this is usually an indicator that your Subpod is too dry.
To keep the worms happy while you’re away, buy a pumpkin (or use one that is starting to rot), cut it in half and lay the open sides face down on the top of the bedding of the Subpod.
