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.
You will soon see if your worm composter is too wet – it looks visibly sodden.
Many worms like to remain in the lower trays of stacking tray systems. In fact they are unaware of the tray system really as there are holes in each tray so it's fair to say it is not an exact science. [more...]
It is important to maintain the level of waste in the lower trays of the wormery as the waste is reducing.
The amount of food that worms can eat depends on the size of your worm bin and the number of worms you have. As a general rule, worms can consume about half their body weight in food per day.
The ideal temperature range for a worm composting kit is between 55-77°F 13-25°C (55-77°F). This temperature range allows the worms to most efficiently process the organic matter, reproduce, and thrive.
