How many Subpods do I need?

The average family generates 7kg (15lbs) of food waste a week, just for reference.

My worm bin has fruit flies - what should I do?

Composting is indeed a complete ecosystem but flies don’t need to be tolerated. [more...]

My wormery is too wet - what can I do to help this?

Cardboard is great for your worm composter (as is a sprinkling of lime mix) A ratio of 25-30% volume of shredded cardboard or equivalent will ensure the compost doesn't get too wet and there is air circulating. Avoid the really shiny boxes like soap powder and go for newsprint, egg boxes etc.

What to do with worms that have gone down into the sump/ bottom section?

Sometimes some of your worms migrate to the sump which is mostly more distressing for you than them to be honest.

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.
