Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums
I am feeding four trays in my WormFactory simultaneously, as if they were four separate worm bins, except they are stacked atop each other. I started with maybe a quarter pound of worms a month ago. I am constantly worried something is going to go wrong. I check on them three times a day at least, to make sure they are not all trying to climb out of their tray. I have kept the 5th tray empty just in case an emergency crops up. I can't wait for end of March, which will be three months,…Continue
Is this a problem? I have indoor RM bins with no drainage holes. So they generate a bit of moisture so every couple of weeks I leave the lid off to help dry it out a bit. Lately I'm seeing these mushrooms pop up on the burlap bag I have covering my worms. I've been picking them off and throwing them away. Would like to know if they are a problem or benefit to my bin and recommendations for dealing with it.

Hi I found a group of people protecting an area of rainforest in the Childers area, I am wanting to set up a worm box for them so they can plant with vermicastings and save a greater percentage of their trees when they plant.
When you look at the coffee trees in the pictures above you know how valuable this can be for them a group like this, both cost wise and labouring hours for a more positive outcome for the people…Continue

I read allot on this site PH levels. Do most wormers invest in a PH tester
If so, any recomendations?
Every 3 years this soiless mix is run through worm bins during the winter; the worms get a fresh change of this soiless mix every month for beding…Continue
Wow, looking back 6 months ago from when I started worm farming, I'm just as addicted, if not more. But, I finally learned to just let the worms be and stop bothering them. I think that happened once the VC needed harvesting. Gives me enough of a fix that I don't bother them except to just peek in the room they are in once a day to make sure they aren't making a run for it. When I do peek in, there are TONS of babies and cocoons.
It's finally working right. What a great…Continue
What a job! I finished my second ever harvesting of vermicompost. Did two sessions of the migration method (over a period of 2 weeks), then did 2 sessions of cone-shaped piles in sunlight. I was so amazed when I came across cocoons as well as very tiny baby worms. It was quite difficult spotting cocoons in the black compost. Glad I have an unfinished basement in which store the worms and then do this harvesting. I could not imagine doing this task in an apt.or home without a…Continue
