This package truly contains the "Seeds of Life" We did this as a cheaper option for those who want to try composting worms but either do not have the money, or do not want to spend 20 to 30 dollars on worms to start a colony. You will receive about 3 oz. of nearly finished organic compost, containing lots of red worm capsules (eggs) and maybe even a few worms. Each capsule Looks like a tiny lemon, and contains anywhere from 1 to 15 red worms that will hatch into your bin, and grow and breed and if cared for, will spawn a rather large colony of composting worms in just a few weeks! Just add the contents of the package into your desired worm bin, the compost will give them something to eat as they hatch so that they have a healthy start. this method also causes them to be less likely to try to get away, as worms do not like changes in their environment, these guys will hatch in their new home, and should be comfy cozy right away! We cover the shipping, and remember also that our services do not end with your purchase, Should you have questions or concerns, we will include contact info with your order, feel free to get a hold of us, we LOVE to talk gardening!
