A Natural Way To Aerate Soil and Fertilize Your Garden!
Earthworms are nature's decomposers and soil aerators. ARBICO Organics Earthworms (red wigglers) improve soil tilth and decompose organic matter to create nutrient-rich earthworm castings. These castings are an organic source of nitrogen, phosphorous, potash, magnesium and calcium making them useful as part of a soil medium, for feeding transplants or established plants, and as an ingredient in tea solutions.
Earthworms move up and down through the soil or vermiculture bin in a consistent cycle to feed, break their food down and excrete castings. Their physical movement through the growing medium breaks up soil and introduces beneficial bacteria and oxygen to stimulate fungal activity and more rapid breakdown of organic material. When used in garden beds, this movement aerates the soil and quickens the growth of mycorrhizae, which increases nutrient/water uptake and bolsters disease resistance.
Usage Rate: Use 2-3 worms/sq. ft. 1,000 worms covers approximately 400 sq. ft.
Environment: Vermiculture, Outdoors, Raised Beds, Gardens, Greenhouses, Potted Plants, House Plants, Indoor Growing
Storage: Use immediately, if possible. If immediate use is not possible, store in a cool place. Make sure the area is lit. The worms move away from light sources meaning they will remain happy in the bag. It may be helpful to sprinkle water lightly into the bag once worms are received.
