can you just keep adding material to your vermicompost?

CelbriseSeptember 17, 2012

usually people remove their worm castings and all that because basically they eat up the bedding and poop it out and they will be swimming in their poop. i was wondering is it even possible to just keep on adding dry material/bedding and leave their casting in?

i have a milipede composting going on and i highly doubt they are as fast as worms especially since i don't have a lot atm only like 10-20. but i mean i wanted to get my regular worm bin atm since i don't even have much worms in it and start adding that material ( which is basically compost in the process as of now made for worms though ) and put it into my milipede compost for them to break that down as well. but since they are practically like worms and treated the same i would like actual feed back if this is healthy for them or not.

I'd say no. Eventually the bin is going fill up with castings and need to be emptied.
