The simple instruction manual included explains easy operation of the system with some common questions and answers.
Ideally sheltered from summer sun and excessive rain is recommended.
Food needs to remain loose. Corrugated cardboard strips mixed with the food can prevent compaction. A rinsed piece of carpet / news paper / cardboard is useful for placing over the food waste. (this helps hold moisture and keeps it dark for the worms to work beneth).Garden lime deters flies and helps reduce odour.
250gms worms / and supplied bedding brick set up in level one. 500gms worms / bedding brick uses tray one and two. Once the compost bedding (supplied) and worms are settled in the first and 2nd working trays, the organic waste input depends on the number of worms started with, eg 500gms worms will require approximatly 400gms of mixed food scraps per day. (Rotate the feeding sites).
Composting worms in a suitable environment can double their population approximately 8 to 10 weeks.
With this multiplying population, waste inputs need to be increased accordingly. When the 1st and 2nd working trays are full, the final tray is then used. Once the 3rd level is ¾ full, lift and put the top two levels to one side, (these will contain most of the worms and undigested waste). Remove the 1st working tray which will contain the useful worm castings. Tip the worm castings from the tray
(These castings make a great plant fertiliser when mixed 1 to 3-5 parts soil mixture or water).
Replace the other two working trays and the emptied tray is replaced on top.
This rotating process will encourage the worms to continue moving towards the higher levels leaving the castings behind.Liquid drained from the tap can be further diluted 1 to 2-5 parts water and used as a great plant fertiliser.
250gms (1000 approx) composting worms, 9 to 12 months to reach optimum population which can devour approx 1 litre or 750gms per day of mixed food wastes.
