Does Subpod need any maintenance?

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.

How many worms do I need per Subpod?

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.

Does my food waste need to be broken up into small pieces before adding to the Subpod?

​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.

Do you have to reintroduce new worms after you empty the compost?

When you empty your castings and compost, the worms will not be with the castings, but where the food is, on the other side of the Subpod divider.

How do I keep ants out of the Subpod?

Ants are attracted to dry conditions, so this is usually an indicator that your Subpod is too dry.

Why does my Subpod smell?

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.
