Highly recommended accessories
Elasticated Tie-Down – $10
Super durable, marine quality lid tie down. Assists with keeping pests out and keeping the lid closed in blustery conditions.
Add two extra portholes for $45
Extra portholes on either side of your Habitat can make your life easier. We don’t mind being up to our armpits in castings, but sensible people may prefer the ease of a porthole on more than one side!
Vents – worms require an oxygen rich environment and the vents allow for air movement while keeping pests out.
Portholes – ‘turn and pull’ action porthole allows easy access to the worm castings
Perforated internal base – a suspended base allows liquid to pass through the system, and helps keep the castings oxygenated.
Tap – the simple to use tap has a hose fitting end and is positioned to allow easy drainage of all liquid.
Over-flow system – in the event of not decanting liquid it will overflow out the back of the system so that your worms do not drown.

Using Worm Habitat
The Worm Habitat is quick to set-up, taking approximately 1/2 hr, and is very easy to maintain. Firstly, find a shady spot for the Worm Habitat, prepare the bedding and introduce the worms. After a day you can start feeding. To avoid overfeeding, feed the worms only when there is approximately 20% of the previous feed left. Use a food cover to keep the feed layer moist and dark for the worms. Tap off the liquid leachate by opening the tap and decanting into a liquid collection tray. When the worm farm fills up with castings, unscrew the port-hole and dig out the casting with a small spade or hand-trowel. Maintaining a healthy worm farm is straight forward; make sure that the worms have enough moisture and food and that they are not too hot or too cold.
Every now and then throw in a handful of garden lime or dolomite to keep things sweet. Worms Downunder supply Dolomite Plus which you can purchase by clicking here.
