    I've asked you time and again to stop playing these games, I think you feel if you push enough, I'll say something to get in trouble...keep dreaming! Subject has been changed several times to bring it back to the topic, you still derail and play games. What is it with you??

    Thanks for the good laugh Roddy.

    But like I said before that if you would have known what you were talking about in the first place none of this would have happened, but since you did not you are just trying to prove to yourself that you do. You are blinded by your own mistakes.

    I think it'sd help if you didn't pretend to know what I'm talking about....maybe that would help! See...I know what I'm talking about and am happy to help. You? Well, you just keep playing games and pretending like you proved me wrong....if it'd shut your yapping, I'll pretend to agree...will that finally get you to stop derailing??

    I do not need to pretend you have done it for me:rofl:

    1)They do not sell worm casing, they sell worm dirt

    2) Unwilling to help your fellow grower

    2) I never called you a liar you did

    3) You still think you are buying worm casings when you are actually buying worm dirt


    4) you finally called it what it is

    5) Now it is worm casting again

    6) Here you just taking stabs at anyone

    7)Where is your help? Just assuming

    8) This is playing games


    9) Back to calling it worm casting when in fact it is worm dirt

    10) See all of the above posts, just repeating. Confrontations with Hal, Ozzy, nvthis, and anyone else that does not agree with you

    Do you need more proof? Just go to that other thread for it

    And so, to recap for you OP, look for a good outdoor store and check out your options, saving money is a great thing!! Keep in mind that what you're buying may not be pure worm castings, but hey, for the big savings in price I'M SEEING, I am quite happy especially since the bonus is rich soil.

    GrowRebel I would be very careful if you decide to use this worm dirt as it still has organic/ food scraps(since it is teaming with worms and worms need food to survive) in it which will cause it to leech leachte which will kill your plants. The choice is yours.

    I happen to have very healthy and happy gals producing upwards of 6 oz of killer bud per plant...and have been using this worm casting/soil mix for over a year, please be sure to take all the precautions with a grin of salt. Again, you have the choice out there, find what works for you and be happy!

    Actually, this *worm dirt* is correctly called vermicompost and that statement could be true or false, depending on what they feed the worms. Stuff like laying mash (ground up corn), is great and the worms love it. It will also sour if mixed into the bedding. You only use it on the surface for feeding.

    All I use is vermicompost, since the bedding in my bins is never completely consumed.

    But what I use for bedding is basically the beginnings of my soil mix (peat moss, perlite, lime, kelp meal and some other rock dusts). For food, it is mostly coffee grounds, alfalfa, wheat and soy meal, that I sorta 'bokashi' and comfrey from the bed. We don't generate very much in the way of food scraps. The laying mash, I stop a month or so before I harvest the bin, since I harvest the entire bin at the same time.

    Anyway, this is stuff I would be adding to my mix anyway, so if it's not 100% consumed, no big deal. I know exactly what's in there.

    Let it go Roddy and get over it and get a bit more mature.

    I have proved you wrong many many many times.

    Appreciate the info wet!

    When food was mentioned, I pictured coffee grounds and such as well, why I said I saw none present in a comment before, just nice beautiful black gold! I've been using this stuff for over a year and have had chance to get a good look/smell of it, never seen food present. I have seen many many worms, but I've read reports of people putting worms in with their pots and having living worms at the end of harvest...so don't and didn't see an issue.

    When you ad fresh food to the worm bin it starts to break down and goes into a mesophilic process. I don't think they're feeding this soil before selling it, and I know I'm not.

    This instability is usually accompanied by a smelly or foul odor. The lack of that might be a telling sign.

    Unfortunately there seems to be misleading information provided by some worm bin manufacturers (and website owners). The terms ‘worm tea’, ‘worm compost tea’, ‘castings tea’, or ‘vermicompost tea’ should actually refer to the liquid fertilizer created by steeping (soaking) quality castings/compost in water (often aerated) for a period of time. The problem is that many people refer to the liquid that drains out from a worm bin as ‘worm tea’, when the proper term for this is actually ‘leachate’. This is talking about teas, not what is being discussed at all.

    Well I guess you do not understand what you are using and/or talking about. There is nothing I can do about that since you are unable to learn
