remember that the worms survive in some really varied conditions. on the forum we tend to overdo some things for fear of this or that going wrong. the basic information has been hashed and re-hashed, but even that can be a trap with so much conflicting information. follow the logical path. remember they really can't create something from nothing. the better their bedding and feed the higher the quality of the castings. there are different approaches to raising the worms: 1. focus on reproduction, 2. focus on VC (this runs the gambit on castings vs. broken down bedding.), 3. production of castings. each takes a different system for optimization.

sounds like you have been delving into the word on the web. i personally like to follow the links from North Carolina State University's vermiculture conference site. you can google it. their are a couple of people that are highly respected on this forum. you may have already sorted those out.

the most important thing is relax and enjoy your hobby. don't know where your goals are with this but the best to you

Hi Justin, 

Thank you for your comment with regards to celery growing in my worm bin and you having wee pumpkins growing in yours! Amazing is that they get enough light, considering their home is filled with holes.

Cool website with all of your beautiful roses.
