Leachate, Worm Wee can contain phytotoxins which can
harm plants and humans. Some of these toxins are created by bacteria,
and every worm bin has good and bad microbes, so itís important that
the good outnumber the bad. Leachate is harmful because it has not been
processed by the worms and gone through their intestinal tract.
During the decomposition of food matter in the worm farm, this waste
process releases liquid from the cell structure. This liquid or
leachate seeps down through the worm farm into a collection area, and
should be drained regularly.
Leachate (Worm Wee) is not without its value and is extolled by many,
and should be treated before using in a garden as liquid fertiliser, as
it does have many beneficial microorganisms.
Dilute it ten parts water to one part leachate (10:1).
Always use only dechlorinated water, rainwater, pond or
Do not use water from the tap with its many chemicals,
use either boiled water that has been cooled, or leave tap water to stand
for 24 hours before adding Leachate.
Aerate it with an air pump if available or stir for at
least five minutes in alternating directions.
Use it outdoors on shrubs, ornamentals or flowering
plants only. DO NOT use on plants you intend to eat..
Our Worm Dry Fertilizer is dried worm castings
Vermicomposting reduces the production of harmful
methane and CO2 gases. These greenhouse gases are produced in small
amounts when organic waste is recycled on properly managed compost
heaps and in large amounts when organic materials are thrown and buried
Worm castings, are a great fertilizer and can be used
immediately as an organic plant food. Most other compost needs many
years to mature and dry before it should be used as a fertilizer.
Worm castings are a slow release organic plant food, and
will give nutrients to plants for up to 6 months. Itís a great soil
conditioner and can be used to make worm tea, and added to compost
heaps for increased benefits.
Both worm tea and worm castings are a natural pesticide
and will protect plants and aid in growing more organically..
