A. Shelter:
Keep in a container (basin) under shelter; keep away from sun (heat) and rain.

B. Food & Feeding:

Feed with raw organic waste in small pieces (vegetables, fruits, egg shell, etc.). Feed every 2 to 3 days or when food is decomposed. DO NOT overfeed / feed food with oil, salt, chemicals, acidic food (sour, citrus), meat and pet faeces.

C. Water:
Maintain moisture by spraying chlorine-free water (e.g. boiled water) on dry area and mix soil.

D. Harvest:
Harvest the vermicast soil on the top layer after 5-7 days. Be gentle when harvesting to avoid hurting worms (worms may split, but still live). Ensure soil is always at least 2 – 3 inches deep. Top up with normal garden soil (no chemicals) and food once decreases after harvest. Mix soil.

Q1: How long do the worms live?

A: 6 to 8 years if taken care of properly. They reproduce quickly and can reach adulthood in a month or so. It is encouraged to separate baby worms for faster growth.
 

Q2: What “home” can I use to keep my worms?

A: It is recommended to use a plastic basin / tray / box to keep your worms. Bigger amounts of worm will require a larger container. Only cover the top with a net to prevent flies and dust from entering.

NOTE: It is not advised to use a glass tank as the humidity, temperature and environment may not be suitable for the worms.


Q3: How much and often should I feed my worms?

A: Feed worms once every 2 to 3 days, with the weight of the food equal to the weight of the worms (e.g. 200g food for 200g worms). Cut food into small pieces and cover with soil. Check if the previous food has decomposed and DO NOT OVERFEED! Spray non-chlorine water on top if food and soil are dry.


Q4: Can I feed my worms leftovers (rice, etc)?

A: Please ensure that all food given is natural (no salt, oil, chemicals, non-processed and non-citrus). It is best to give soft fruit and vegetable waste that is slightly decomposed already. Cooked rice and old bread are alright too, but not encouraged for quality vermicompost and healthy worm diet!


Q5. How often do I harvest my vermicompost?

A: You can harvest when the food waste is decomposed after a week or so. You can choose to harvest the top layer of the medium where most of the vermicast will be. It is usually dryer, rougher and in small, round balls/clumps.

NOTE: Harder / dryer food may take longer to decompose and create vermicast.


Q6: How do I use the vermicompost?

A: Apply it on the top touching roots or mix with soil, or both! Make sure it does not get too dry. More vermicast used may retain water; monitor watering. See vermicompt FAQ for more information on usage.


Q7: What soil can I use for my worms?

A: You can use any type of non-chemical soil for your worms’ bedding. Natural garden or composted soil are recommended. Add when topping up soil after harvesting. Just remember to keep it a bit moist!


Q8: Can I keep the worms under the sun?

A: Be careful when keeping worms outdoors. Keep your worms under shade or shelter as extreme heat / rain (flooding) will cause them to escape or die. Light may be used to keep worms less active at night.


Q9: Can I keep the worms inside my home?

A: Yes, there is no problem. Just keep them somewhere safe and away from pets / chemicals. Light may be needed at night if worms are too active.


Q10: Can I mix my worms with other types of worms?

Ans: You can mix in other types of earthworms, just do not add other types of insects which may harm the Nightcrawlers (snails, caterpillars, etc). KEEP AWAY FROM RED ANTS.


Q11: What do I do if my worms start escaping?

A: There must be something wrong in their home! Check all parts of the medium (soil, food, humidity, etc.) once again. Contact us or text us at 010-9072801 if you need further assistance.
