help with vermicompost starting
i want to start vermicomposting maybe next month but i have a few questions i am unsure of.
1. do worms only eat fruit and vegetable scraps? i mean can i feed them my dried up leaves as food? or newspaper?
2. what should NOT be in vermicompost because it will kill your worms. i have an indoor compost i had going for about a month and i used about half of it and the rest i made a new batch using newspaper as my carbon. this compost contains a lot of coffee grounds. and i know it has a single worm in it as i saw it the other day but i mean i no longer see the worm so im thinking it died from the acidity. what should i keep out of this compost pile to ensure good worms? after all i have to buy the worms and they are not cheap here.
3. does it matter what type of worms you get? i mean is their any level of difficulty for keeping certain worms alive? or are they all typically the same to care for.
