« EISENIA FOETIDA » alias red wigglers

In order to have a powerful vermicomposter from the start, it is preferable to obtain a sufficient quantity according to our vermicomposter. However, we can very well start with less earthworms and let their population increase.

Unlike large earthworms, which aerate the soil by digging galleries, the red worm prefers the top layer of the soil. It is greedy: it can transform each day a quantity of organic matter equivalent to more than half of its weight (eg: 500 g of earthworms can consume 250 g of organic matter per day). Very resistant, it accepts life in captivity and tolerates different conditions of temperature, humidity and acidity.
