Convert kitchen scraps into high quality worm castings with this cleverly designed, odourless vermicomposting unit. As the lower trays fill with scraps, new trays are added, allowing the earthworms to move up and down through the column. This results in the lower trays eventually filling with "black gold" worm castings that are ready for your garden or house plants. The Worm Factory Composter kit comes complete with tools, coir and paper bedding to get it started, written instructions, compost thermometer, and a drainage spigot. Just add worms and you're ready to go! It also indicates where to look on the manufacturer's website to see an instructional video.
Red wiggler worms thrive in temperatures between 55° and 75° Fahrenheit (12° to 24° Celsius). They will slow down reproduction and feeding in extreme heat or cold, and can even die if the temperatures get too extreme. When monitoring the temperature of your bin, it is important to remember to measure inside the worm composter, because the temperature of the moist bedding is usually lower than the outside air temperature. You can use a soil thermometer to measure the temperature of your worm bin bedding.
The Worm Factory 360 is constructed from recycled HDPE (high density polyethylene). It is 28 inches tall and 18 inches wide when fully assembled.
