Under the Table

These are seedling trays on top of our nursery table/bed. Under the table is one of our vermi-bins. Our earthworms are target fed. We feed them according to what kind of vermicast we want to produce. To learn more about this technique, all you have to do is ask...

As of now, I think (I think) we're the only ones practicing this technique.

Hi Mr. Raymond,

I already started my vermi-project at home. I'm very interested in this thing called target-feeding of worms. Does it mean not all vermicasts are the same. Can you please elaborate more on what are the best substrate/bedding? Thanks po.

target feeding earthworms is simpler than it sounds. you just have to know the active ingredients of the plant or plant parts your feeding them. example, you want more potassium in your vermicompost, feed them banana or papaya.
