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