Back in January we decided to try putting a handful of worms into one of our larger potted plants. http://www.naturesperfectplantfood.com/2012/01/17/worms-in-potted-plants/ It’s been two months and time for an update. We’ve observed a few changes in soil structure, the leaf litter is composting faster and the soil is retaining more moisture. Indeed the first few centimetres are looser and have more Humus. But…(yes there’s always a but) we were only able to find one emaciated worm. It has been shown that Red composting worms require a richer diet than is provided by monoculture leaf litter. Not really a stunning scientific breakthrough, so, is it this the end of the road for our little squirmy friends…. of course not. We’re going to feed them! Just like an indoor bins we can build up the population and see how they fare in a non-famin habitat.
