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.

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 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 Subpods do I need?

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