Bake the verm in the oven at around 250 degrees for a little while. Don't use perlite in your casings, and I'm not sure what tek you are using but why do you have top soil?

Use straight verm or a 50/50 mix of verm and coir. Check this out for information on casing.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

Straight verm casing is pretty common. I've heard bad things about the Wizard guide... :/

Dry verm in a bowl
Add water till moist
Spread on top of substrate

:thumbup:

I suggest adding coco coir (found in pet stores as reptile bedding and comes in a very hard bricks).

You can do a bottom layer if you want. Some do some dont. I dont.
