Do not open til Christmas
I started another bin filled with chopped cardboard innoculated with casting tea that I was aerating. I put 50 cocoons of E. hortensis (euro night crawlers) on a piece of paper towel about an inch down into the bedding. I have no intention to open the bin until the holidays to either feed or add water ( I think the cardboard is sufficiently wet).
What prompted this was 2 thoughts. The first was an experiment described on Redworm composting where they looked to see how a set of cocoons would hatch and grow. I just figured to take it a little longer.
The second thing was there is often a person on here who would like to get started with worms but does not want to buy and ship in a pound or more of worms. I have often thought how it would be easy to simply mail 50 to 100 cocoons wrapped in a paper towel in a regular envelope to get the person started. The hard part is for the person to have the PATIENCE to sit and wait while the worms hatched and grew.
