Worms eating my millet spawn
    #2148634 - 12/01/03 07:26 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I went and checked around a couple of climbing roses, scraped back straw and manure and all I can see is specs of vermiculite and a lot fat worms. They ate all the spent case (millet seed) materials. Do folks get this problem?

So I got this idea a while back off bluemeanie of doing manure in an outdoors tub, in this case so I don't cop the worm drama of beds. Garbo lid on top so it's dark inside.
Appears to be working, put together 3 days ago and there's a "mend" of mycelium just under the top, I'll case it when it advances some more...err if all goes well? Strain is Golden Teacher.




...anyone had success with the outdoor tub method and what's the main P&D to watch for, I'm aware snails & slugs are a scourge.

Which processes do you apply to the manure, is it pasteurized ?
Anyway, working with outdoor beds brings some common problems. Worms, slugs and snails are a few of those.
I know you can relate this issue with contamination forum but i guess you'll have more interesting answers in advanced cult. Just an advice... :wink:

No it wasn't pasteurised and the millet spawn was jars that had stalled to bacteria and even a couple that had the dreaded green mould. I thought I'd let nature do her thing.

Now three weeks on and scraping back the casing and it has "mended" in these summer incubator like temps.



At least the worms didn't jump this. :smile:
