Questions about worm composting

by Stephan
(Admin)

Hello Stephan,

Thanks for the worm consignment. Now I need your advice as to what I need to put in my bucket to ensure optimum success. And the ratio of the different mediums that can be used. To your starter mix I have added potato and banana peels, bits of tomato, pear and apple peels and cores, dried grass clippings and some leaves. Sometimes I get a blue mold growing on top and 3 days ago the mix smelt a bit 'sour'. I left it open for about an hour.

What all can I put in as a "breeding medium" and what should I avoid? Are Cabbage leaves okay. Somehow it just does not seem to me as if there is much happening in the box and bucket.....Please give me a recipe for a breeding medium and how often do I add stuff. When is it too wet or too dry ? What would be the best temperature to keep the worms at?. Gosh I know I sound stupid but I do not wish to lose this bunch of red wrigglers as well.
I know you must be quite busy but I would really appreciate hearing from you with your best advice.

Kind regards.


Annette
