I read from tanamsendiri.com about this and so i followed his way. I started shredding newspaper and damp it up, and form them into balls and arrange them like this...
and this is how it looks like when its full, first layer.
Then you began filling up your first layer of dirt/earth/whatever you wanna call it.
I filled it up with 2-3 inches of soil and then add in another layer of newspaper and again another layer of dirt.
And then the worms are added to their new home. Supposedly, you should add in the topsoil (the soil where you found your worms) so that the worms won't get "culture shock". Cos suddenly they are in a new surrounding and doesn't have their smell or something they might go into shock. Don't ask me what happen when they are in shock, i suppose they just die?. But then since it was given to me, try la. what to do right?
There you go worms. Enjoy your new home!
And here's their first food. Yum...Yum.....A well blended banana and apple smoothies.
(rotten banana and half eaten apple *lol)
(why blend? Worms don't have teeth! So by blending it, it makes them eat easier, faster, and you get your compost faster. That's why)
There, that's what my mum gave me on my birthday.
And I started a worm compost bin on my birthday.*lol*
P/S: food you should avoid putting into your compost : Orange, Lemon, Lime, Garlic and Onion, Bones, cooked food.
P/S: since I am putting it in my kitchen, I sprayed the outer layer of the container with OMG insects to prevent ants from going into the container.
