don't know if there is a home depot near year, but there are three types of coir, the chunky, the medium grade which has fibre, and the fine that is very short fibres.

home depot in my area, San Francisco Bay area carries the medium grade which is the grade i like for a 3 slab block that expands to 3cu ft. it is $8.95

Jerilynn, do you still have the Worm-a-roo? Is this it? http://worms.com/worm-a-roo.html

How long have you had it and do the worms follow the manual, lol?

Hi Jerilynn, honored to be your friend.

Yes, you're right about availability. I tried to find info on the dimension but it's not listed. A good system though. and following their principle, handy people can do a DIY with lumber.

There is an illustration of the un-assembled Worm-a-roo where I can see the 'lateral movement mechanism'.

It's the separation wall with the holes. What's so special about it?

Nothing really, I suppose if it's outdoors.  Indoors, if the fit and finish isn't tight enough, then stuff will fall out onto the floor.  Also, you wouldnt be able to close off one partition if you just built it with holes, so stuff will fall from one side to the other when you harvest.  Come to think of it, I guess someone could design and build a wooden one.

It's odd that no one seems to sell/mention lateral migration systems these day. I wonder why that is.  You could design/build and sell them and make a fortune.  ;)
