Re: Where to start ...

It just all looks the same to be honest - so definitely can’t tell what “castings are”. Shall I just take some contents from the bottom of the first tray then ? And does it matter if worms are part of the contents or shall I try and leave the worms to move up into the tray themselves ? Silly questio...

Re: Where to start ...

Update on my wormies- Well my little lovelies are breeding like nobodies business and I often find a lot of them in the sump, it took them a while in the beginning to start eating but I think that was possibly down to my mistake as I was only putting the food on the top and not covering it with any ...

Re: Where to start ...

No liquid had been made yet!! I think it’s been a week today or a week tomorrow that the worms have been in. I put a couple teabags in the corners yesterday and some raspberries. And when I checked this morning - I only had 3 edcapees in the sump , where as the day before there was around 20-25 . So...

Re: Where to start ...

Hi, I just followed the instruction booklet - which said to use sheets of paper or cardboard as the base layer , but I only had paper at the time of setup. I have cardboard , but I’m a bit reluctant now to disturb them by taking everything out - just to put the cardboard in! What about if I put the ...

Re: Where to start ...

So I checked on worms and loads of them had escaped into the sump - are they trying to get out ??
When do I start adding the other trays - as only got one on the go at the minute and that’s the one with all the worms and bedding in with some shredded paper over the top and then the lid.

Re: Where to start ...

Thanks again for your help , because it’s only been 2 days I’ve placed them in a shaded spot just so I’m sure they don’t get too hot. We’ve had some really warm weather in Norfolk over the past few days. Because it’s the first week shall I leave them to it or check it everyday ?? Don’t want to distu...

Re: Where to start ...

Thanks for your help Willy. Is it best to place the wormery in a shaded spot then ? And if the bedding isn’t moist enough one day , do I just spray water onto it ? And if after a couple days the worms havnt eaten all the food and some had started going rotten - do I remove it?

Where to start ...

I’m a wormery beginner (wormginner) I have 3 year old twins who are really looking forward to receiving the wormery. I went for the 4 tray one after a bit of research. How many days do I have to leave it before feeding the worms there first meal? And do I have to leave the food to rot for a day or t...
