They look fine to me. I don't know much about worm castings (have never used them in my mycology ventures), but the compost will do just fine.

I went nosing around on the net to try and get more detailed info on the compost. I wasn't able to come it with too much, but here's a bit of material:

ingredients

pages 13-40 seem to be interesting

recycle/composting program

I get the distinct impression this is definitely not dung-based, but purely recycled material from the stores.

Still think this is suitable?

$1.99 a bag... ( if I recall correctly - but I forgot to get the price for the worm castings... $14 I think? )

I felt pretty funny taking pictures of their display inside the store... it took me some time to get decent images... heheh, but nobody bugged me about it.

Yes worm castings and straw mix works very well. Worm castings alone work well. With the compost, usualy the only way to tell with store bought compost, is to test it out.

I dont know if agar has seen this and just isnt sure but he would be one who knows if someone does. You may just have to try it though...

I'd be more confident w/ horse or cow compost.

Though the curiosity regarding the effectiveness of a purely recycled-materials, non-dung compost is enticing enough to at least consider giving it a shot.

I would do the worm castings over that compost. Mix the worm castings with straw.
