Worms seem to be surviving the freezing weather clustered around the water jugs with aquarium heaters.

Hope they bounce back when we get warmer weather,

I have a can-o-worms that I just moved inside due to 90 degree heat. I also just harvested red wigglers from my outdoor compost bin.

Hello from Reno.

Lets talk newbe. I just got my worms yesterday. This is my first time and boy do I have questions. I have researched this for 2 weeks before I decided to do this and still didn't get all my questions answered.

Lets start with just one questions at a time. I have a home for the worms where they can migrate up, and it catches the liquid on the bottom. I know that the liquid is only good for - some say 2 to 4 hrs after the tea is made, others say 2 - 4 days after it is made. My question is how long is the liquid good for BEFORE THE TEA IS MADE?

Hello from Reno again

Another question. Some say that when you make the worm tea, you should add molasses to the mixture, other people say that the molasses is not good for the plants. Who can help me on this?

Hello from Reno again

Here is another question. I have seen a ton of videos on all sorts of different "recipes" for worm tea. Everyone says that they have the best one, but no one has said how long they have been doing it, or what kind of growth they have seen with their recipe.

Does anyone out there have a recipe that they can give to me, with something to back it up? Like, "I have seen x amount of growth within x amount of days, and I have been doing this for x amount of yrs"

I am just so new at all this and I just don't want to screw anything up.

Thanks for everyones help - I will cherish it
