Starting population of compost worms for the HOME and the TUBE, rich in microorganisms in the substrate.



The compost worm is an expert at converting organic waste into organic fertiliser. Our compost worms thrive in confined spaces, are voracious and love kitchen waste. The best thing: The composting process is odourless, clean and easy thanks to the worms.Our starter population (reference 250g biomass) in all stages of development - from cocoon to adult worm - is ideal for the WormUp HOME and the WormUp TUBE. Maxi (approx. 500gr.) for all those who want a little more appetite in the composter.

The magic of compost worms

The compost worm composts and loosens the soil. In the process, it eats large quantities of plant material and excretes worm humus, which contains valuable nutrients and microorganisms. The earthworms love vegetable kitchen waste, garden waste, cardboard, coffee grounds and tea grounds. Worm humus helps garden or house plants to grow healthily. In principle, however, they are also useful in all other areas where dead plants are to be converted into fertiliser - for example in raised beds or garden beds.they like to live close to each other and are real gluttons. The little helper is most industrious at temperatures of 18 to 24 °C. Their metabolism slows down at cooler temperatures.

Odourless mini eco system

Compost worms do not work alone, but in a team with an entire food web. The microorganisms (bacteria and fungi) make the start: they break down the organic material and produce a slurry. It is easiest for the micro-organisms if the waste is nicely shredded. The compost worms then suck up this slurry et voilà - it doesn't stink!
