    we put it together and added the moistened coconut coir brick(provided/not pictured). we then added 2 cups of dirt and a layer of food waste.

    after that we added the worms with the contents they were shipped in.

    we spread the contents around and the worms eagerly started to move around

    we put the top and and now the magic happens

    we will need to get more worms. like 500 or so more.

    I do this too but I saw right off the bat onions!!!!! You will have a max exudous or they will drop to the lowest level and drown in the liquid that gathers there [​IMG] don't put onion, garlic, citrus or any meat or fish product in there otherwise it'll stink, or the worms will try to flee [​IMG]

    Quote:oh man really? we eat a lot of onions and there is always waste with them.

    we do have a liner in the composter that filters the liquid to the bottom for tea.

    Yeah, that's where I found the worms when I used onions [​IMG] I also use rubbermaid totes to compost with European Night crawlers.. and they climb the walls and exit the holes on top if I put something in there they dont like

    Quote:well i dont think they will get into the liquid because of the cloth liner above the liquid pan but i will stop putting onions in there i guess. should i remove the onions in there now you think?

    also, what type of worms did you use for compost?
