In Your Book "How to start a profitable worm business..." What Did You Mean By...
A breeder bin for compost worms
I bought your book. Absolutely love it! I've read it 3 times and carry it with me in my purse when I have to wait. ;0). You talked about starting with 10 Breeder Bins (page 8-9). It says, each should be 3 meters squared. In the back it says that the conversion is 9+ square feet. That is quite a large space for only 500-1000 worms. 4.5 feet wide and 4.5 feet long is huge. They'd never find each other to mate. Or is that the size to start?
I bought the Worm Farm 360. It's about 1 foot X 1 foot and about 4-5 inches deep. Although the product is doing a great job and the worms are growing and eating very nicely, I now wonder if worm breeding should be done in larger containers? It has a 5 tier growth with being able to have compost. Okay so here is the question. At what point do I move them to larger containers? I have a bed run so a good mixture of all sizes. But I don't want to stunt the growth because they are in too small of a container as well. What are your thoughts?
Unfortunately I bought your book after I bought the farm (ahahhaha! Get it? Ehem). And bought the worms prior to buying your book. Otherwise I would have bought all adult worms to begin the breeding process now rather than 3 months.
