I think it's tea from wormpoo, a liquid organic fertilizer. TOA uses compost to do his compost teas, which are another form of an organic fertilizer. Organic teas can be used for hydro - ask useless.

Heres the poo juice i use...Just to let folks know that it can be bought if your lazy like me...
also,,,i love this stuff it makes for some dam healthy looking plants...i think its more of a soil conditioner,,,,rather than having any real npk value it breaks down all the good shit thats already in your soil and makes it more readily available for your plant to consume...it can also be used as a foliar to keep lots of nasty fungi and pests away from your plants....







If anyone is interested in finding the stuff pm and ill put you on it...

Yes, midnite is right, it's more a conditioner than fertilizer. (same with tea from wormcastings I guess). Do they add stabilizers to that juice? How long is it's shelf life?
I guess it's a good brand for lazy ppl. However gardening is not really a lazy occupation (I am a lazy gardener, but that still envolves some efforts).

Long blurp, short conclusion: worms are cheap and they produce some nice stuff along the way. And if you produce too much worms, you can always dry them, grind and use them as a fertilizer - I however wouldn't do that to my worms

soil What about nightcrawlers...?

1.Will nightcrawlers survive in the same type of setup as the redworms?
2.Will they eat at the same rate, same diet?

I'm impatient and want to try my new homemade bins, and nightcrawlers are easy to come by here until my redworms come in the mail......What do you think? Thanks!

1. My worms are called Giant Redworms or European Nightcrawlers, so it's a bit difficult to answer that and the following question. The scientific name is Eisenia Hortensis. The worms they use in the link (eating jeans) are Eisenia Foetida. Very tough worms, hard to get here. Mine are supposed not to work in bins tho. However my small bin proved that statement wrong. Canadian Nightcrawlers, Lumbricus terrestris can not be cultivated.
2. I'd say yes to same diet for worms in general, the rate depends on much other factors and the reproduction cycle imho, which is different between the species.

Anyway I've read that a mix of different worms seems even better and the worms don't bother that. I started my small bin with 800, that would be many to collect .
