If your wormery is too wet, there are a few things you can do to address the issue:
Once you have filled one tray in your worm composting kit, there are a few things you can do to continue the composting process:
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.
Worms are decomposers and they consume organic matter and convert it into nutrient-rich compost.
This liquid is a very potent fertiliser or drain cleaner and it can have a really strong smell so the best way to avoid this is to drain it regularly and use it.
If your kit begins to smell add a good handful more of Bokashi Bran as it is likely the waste is putrifying rather than fermenting.
Obviously these must have entered on your food waste in some form so the first step is to add your food waste more regularly to avoid this issue.
This is good news. The white mould is actually a fungi and shows that the food waste is fermenting rather than putrefying.
The best way to deal with this is to throw the whole batch away
