I got my worms from Worms Etc. Matthew sells both Eisenia hortensis and E. foetida. I've been happy with the worms he sent me.

Hi
gerris2- What is the difference between Eisenia hortensis and E. foetida? Are they both red wigglers? Euro's are
night crawlers, correct? Sorry for all the questions.

My children got me a five level worm farm for Christmas
after a I expressed an interest. I think its time I put it to use.

I have so many questions.

Thank you

There are good summaries on the worm species on the Vermicomposters web site. Here is one for Eisenia hortensis.

There is a "worm wiki" on Vermicomposters which seems to be not accessible at the present time. I'll post a link when it comes back online.

Red Worm Composting web site is a good source of information.
