How does this worm bin work?
The Wormtoren consists of a pile of compost rings, with a collection bin underneath for the released moisture. The compost worms that end up at the bottom of the collection bin can always crawl back up through the specially designed soil.
The top compost ring of the worm hotel can be closed with a plant ring or with a standard lid.
In the compost ring you put special compost worms. The worms feed you uncooked fruit and vegetable residues. The worms also love coffee grounds. Each layer is closed with a layer of torn cardboard. You can immediately order the worms with your worm bin.
When the first compost ring of the worm hotel is full, put an empty ring on top and fill that ring with waste and cardboard. The worms crawl through the holes in the bottom towards the food. If the last ring is full, the contents of the first ring are composted. You empty this ring and put it back on top to refill.
You drain the moisture via a tap. You dilute this ‘worm tea’ with water and give it to your plants.
