is their a minimum size to a worm bin, or can it be scaled to meet the need of the grower? and how long is the wait before you start to see usable ewc at a level great enough to do some planting with?

I've never seen a complicated worm bin but still... here's a really nifty little one that serves as a way of removing worms/harvesting castings/collecting leachate tea all in one!

rkrone - that all depends on the size of the food scraps they're fed (smaller the better) & the amount of worms doing the job but its roughly about 90 days,

Checked out that site Dignan,,, nice find, good info.

I just threw my chopped-up male plant in the worm bin, we'll see if they like it.

The worms seem to really like the MJ plant, also some dead plants from my pond.

Earthworm Products

I believe you can store earth worm castings in a covered box, and the tea in any kind of container with a lid. I *think* they would still be good in 2008, but I haven't tried saving either one, so I'm not 100% certain. If you have houseplants, they'd certainly use them.

keep fresh castings in a closed container in a cool dry place. you CAN NOT store tea. if your tea was brewed right and you put it in a container it will explode from pressure build up. use fresh as possible

aha! tnx on the info space_cowgirl and jaykush!

but i think we didn't understand on the storing worm tea. maybe my understanding of it is wrong.

tea is something you make out of worm castings right?
drainage that comes from the bottom of the worm bin is just worm casting drainage, but not tea?

my question was, if there is possible to store plain drainage that comes from the bottom of the worm bin?
