Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums
I'm on my third cycle of 5 gallon buckets. Today, I started another one with cardboard, rabbit manure, coconut coir, and lots of live oak leaves. I'd like to get my hands on some maple leaves at some point, but I don't think maples survive well in the heat we get in Florida. Live oaks are very prevalent.
I wet everything down well and added 22 eisenia foetidas. I'm not quite sure why I picked 22, but a couple of handfuls of material from one of my other bins yielded 22 worms.
In my other 5 gallon bucket experiments, moisture needed to be monitored closely for the first couple of weeks. After things are going for a while the moisture takes care of itself.
Anyone care to guess how many worms those 22 will multiply after 4 months?
