WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR CULTURE:
White Worms are extremely easy to store and look after.
• Immediately open your white worm bag to allow some air for the worms.
• Prepare a container for your worms. Your container must have a lid, but with small holes in the lid for oxygen.
• Place some soil, potting mix (Chemical Free) or Coconut Husks, in your container and wet the soil enough to make it damp.
• Empty the contents of your White Worms bag onto the soil in the middle of your container. Sprinkle the top of your soil with some fish food flakes (This is food for your worms). Be sure to empty entire bag contents as there will be eggs in the soil in the bag.
• Put the lid on your container and store container in a dark place.
• Feed your White Worms a couple times a week by sprinkling fish food on top of the soil.
• It is advised to leave your White worm culture for about a couple of weeks before you start harvesting, to allow them to reproduce and lay their eggs in your container so that you will have a bigger better supply for the future.
Your White worms will bury themselves into the soil as they do not like light, but they will come up to the top to feed.
Harvesting the White worms is easy, some will climb the walls of your container, so just scrap them off and feed to your fish. You can also use a strainer to wash your worms if you wish before feeding.
