Earthworm compost bedding

Composting worms not only need food, but also some sort of habitat to live in – Earthworm compost bedding materials provide both.

What is Earthworm compost bedding

Ideal worm living conditions can be created initially by adding lots of bedding material with a decent amount of waste material (and likely some water to ensure adequate moisture conditions).

People often refer to the ideal composting moisture content as being similar to that of a wrung-out sponge.

Higher moisture levels do tend to work better for worm composting, but this is definitely a good guideline to start with (especially when using a water-tight bin).

Kind of Earthworm compost bedding

Some great materials for bedding include shredded cardboard (my favorite), shredded newspaper, aged straw, coconut coir, fall leaves and peat moss (although I prefer not to use this material since it is not harvested in a sustainable or environmentally-friendly manner).

Worms seem to absolutely love rotting leaves, so definitely don’t be so quick to kick those bags to the curb in the fall.

The downside of using leaves (aside from seasonality) is the fact that they don’t really absorb much water – this is why my ideal bedding will consist of a mix of leaves and brown cardboard (another material worms seem to have a real affinity for).

How Earthworm compost bedding

Earthworm compost bedding will typically need to be moistened before worms are added. In fact, a practice I highly recommend when starting a new bin is mixing bedding with a decent amount of moist food waste, then simply letting the mixture sit in a closed bin for a week or so before adding worms.

This way you are creating a very friendly environment for your worms to live in. Aside from activating the important microbial community, this also allows for moisture to makes its way throughout the bin materials.

    Food for worm

    Food for worm - think of!!! Usually people set up their own worm bin at home so they can compost their food scraps and leftovers. Unfortunately not all waste materials are created equal from a worm’s standpoint (or a human health standpoint for that matter), so we should talk a little about what should and should not be added to an indoor worm bin. Food for worm SHOULD Food for worm Vegetable & fruit waste (citrus fruit should be added in moderation when using smaller bins) Starchy materials – bread, pasta, rice, potatoes – all in moderation (beginners may want to avoid thes

    How To Harvest Earthworm

    How To Harvest Earthworm is easyer than anything else before you thought before... When to harvest earthworm Generally, a worm bin will have produced a significant amount of good vermicompost at between two and three months along in the process. If you wait even longer, like 4-6 months, you'll have more finished looking vermicompost (it will look more like soil and have more plant-ready nutrients in it). Tip - Try harvesting early one time, then letting it go for much longer the next time, so that you can see the difference in finished product. Harvesting Methods - How To Harvest
