Hey people , It's been awhile . Hope everyone's well. I ran into a situation . I was messin around with my coco coir , ( I reuse mine till the long fibers are gone ) and digging threw it I found a couple live worms . Well , now should I consider this as too hot for seedlings and clones ?? Will it mess with my PH ?
No, it will be fine. You won’t have any problems . They are just eating decomposing vegetation. I have been growing my own worms,for a few years now. Red wigglers are the best for making castings. The crawlers go to deep in the soil. I make them a new bed in the spring and separate them in the fall for the castings. It is a totally organic soil filled with nutrients your plants are easily able to absorb. You cannot over feed. I don’t plant in pure castings but mix it into my soil. I Put a couple handfuls in the bottom of my of my hole to. When the roots reach it. The plant gets another small dose of energy. So, after a year of research before I even started a worm bed. I learned that with a little top dressing it can also repel spider mites and aphids. I recycle most of my kitchen scraps and actually have them on a feeding schedule. In the winter months they are moved to a garage that stays just above freezing.
