Well its not hard to breed them. I use a sphagnum moss bedding. I bought some red wigglers from a local bait shop. They just breed on there own. All you do is feed them. The more you get the more babies they produce. I started out with 50. There like 2-3 bucks for 25. I might get a couple hundred more just to get a bigger stock.

Worm castings are worm poop. It's pretty much the best fertilizer you can get thats all natural/organic. Just mix a bunch in with potting soil for your flowers, garden, field crops etc. Very good stuff.

It's basically a compost. Throw your old vegetables, new vegetables what ever veggies you want to and the worms eat them.


I want to try and start culturing black worms to, for the smaller fish. Right now we go through a 1/4 lb a month. All fish love them lol. That's what we feed our baby redbellies and they go nuts. Same with baby peacock bass and discus. They slurp them down.
