TheCan-O-Worms Composter is made of 100% recycled plastic resin and is an eco-friendly composter that will deteriorate. Now you can turn your organic kitchen waste into useful, nutrient-rich compost. This vermicomposter has a multi-level design that's easy to assemble and easy to use. You can even use it indoors or out.
Just keep in mind that red worms that you use are sensitive to temperatures so your composter should not get below freezing or above 84ºF.
How it works: Start with moist bedding (shredded newspaper, peat moss, coconut coir), add organic kitchen waste, and some red wiggler worms. Within a few months, you'll have a large amount of compost that improves soil structure and aeration, and promotes healthy root development. The worms will digest the waste and bedding, leaving behind nutrient rich castings to make this possible.
In general, 1 lb. of worms will take care of a half pound of kitchen and garden waste. It is not recommended to use fruit or citrus in your can-o-worms because peels tend to last longer and develop and odor. After your Can-O-Worms has been established, you may notice the presence of other bugs, such as millipedes and pill bugs. Don't worry; these bugs aid in the breakdown process! This composter can hold up to 20,000 worms in 3 layers.
