When you add your food scraps and carbon material to the Subpod, you'll need to mix them through using an aerator. This takes a few minutes each time you feed the worms.
You'll need a minimum of 1000 worms, but 2000 is better. If you really want to kick start your Subpod, you can add up to 4000 worms.
The ideal material for worm bedding is coconut coir.
You don’t need to chop everything up small for the worms, but it does speed up the process so your food will break down even faster.
After 2-3 months or when your Subpod is full, you can harvest your Subpod compost.
If your Subpod smells, it indicates that food is rotting before the worms can eat it or there is not enough oxygen in the system.
Do not put intensely spicy foods into your worm composter, such as ginger or an excessive amount of citruses, as well as milk products, meat products, bones, oils, lard and other fats.
It is important to maintain the level of waste in the lower trays of the wormery as the waste is reducing.
