Actually I'm not really loving the tape, lol. It's a quick fix, because I had casual worm escapes at the edges of the container. With the duct tape this has stopped, so I'm somehow loving it as well.

As an addition, I have noticed the following findings:
  • variety, you don't like the same stuff in heaps, over and over, so do worms
  • higly appreciated: Melon or cantaloupe scraps, herbivore manure, cucumber, stinging nettles and yes, the often mentioned coffe grinds
  • not too much coffe grinds
  • too much decaying matter heats the bin up => worms are cooked
  • if it smells, there is too much waste, covering with bedding, or/and sprinkling basalt meal on top covers smells
  • worms love yoghurt in small amounts
  • I avoid onions, garlic and raw potato skins
  • frozen scraps are faster digested by the worms, freezing the potato skins when raw is a good idea
  • vacuum cleaner fluff can be digested, is however considered too toxic
  • avoid too much acid to build up (coffe grinds, orange peels, ect...)
  • basalt meal ups the ph
  • Cooked waste is almost as good as frozen, if there is no or only few salt in it
  • worms love cardboard and shredded newspaper
  • I never thought that peanut shells would take over 12 month to degrade - they however add structure to the bin
  • watch and learn, sloth isn't a sin here

DIY Organic Fertalizers for Cannabis 2007/11/20 08:30


Organic is Easy to make

Nature will happily do wit for ya
U Need
1. Worm Farm and worms (most come wid instructions)



2. Water (purer da better)



3. Cannabis waste (leaf stem roots etc)




Thatís it
Now
Just put strictly cannabis and water in ya worm farm and what u drain out is --->liquid organic fretz designed by nature specifically for cannabis even fine tuned for your specific strain

hydro mix wid water @ 100/1 nutrient
out door @ 10/1


Nutriement Harvesting

Remember what u put in is what u get out

Ok
So for a grow mix u need to put in early males and leaf pre flower

For a bloom mix u need bud trimmings

U can get fully inta it and design strain specific bloom & grow fertz
If u get 3 worm farms goin. 1 for Grow another for bloom and so forth u can even create ur own Changeover mix

Sick lookin plants produces sick fertz

1 crucial ting to remember is if you hav the usual nutrient deficiency in most oze gardens eg NPK and u strictly use plant waste from your garden to make ya fertz then u will get de same deficiencies in ya worm fertz.
Because, you are not adding any thing new to make up or supplement the deficiency.
Seen

Supplements are a must

So u could supplement by adding som other cannabis waste, from distant, different gardens, that dont have the same deficiencies as your local garden.
da most important ting is distance between da gardens- further the better.
or
u could supplement wid lotsa things actually.

What is a supplement???????

well
a sup is only 10% of all the organic matter you put in the worm farm
seen
feed 90% local cannabis waste into ya worm farm at all timez
a supplement is only meant for a boost in the deficient elements levels.

10% by volume is all u need to supplement ya fertz.

check these plants for rich natural sources fe Nitrogen, Phosphate and Potassium
growth stage is important for nutrient harvesting
for N pre flowering
P post flowering
K changeover period-----> from grow to bloom

N - Nitrogen

Comfrey
Nettles
Clovers
Alfalfa (Lucerne)
Cattail



P - Phosphate (Potash)


Docks
Clovers
Chickweed
Bracken (also K/Mn/Fe/Cu/Co)
Caraway
Buckwheat


K - Potassium

Comfrey
Dandelion
Borage
Carrot leaves (also Mg)
Bracken
Chickweed
Chicory
Eyebright

This was copied and pasted from HC
I take no credit for it found it might be a help here.

and remember these are average figers
some variation is expected
so this is really a gestamation chart

ok
check it
