First grow using Worm Poo as medium

#1

Hello all,

This journal will chronicle my first and maybe my last attempt lol using worm castings as my main ingredient in the growing medium.
I mixed up worm casting 75% and the remaining using equal parts of perlite and granular Diatomaceous Earth and placed the mix in a 1 gallon fabric pot. Once the seed popped I put it into the medium and 4 days later she broke through the Poo. I topped with maybe a 1/4 inch of seed starter mix prior to it sprouting so it had some lighter weight material to push up through. Not really sure if that was needed but now the top looks the same as the others.
Once she outgrows the 1 gallon assuming she makes it that far I will then transplant into either 5 or 7 gallon pot using anywhere from 50% - 75% poo and the remaining using perlite and granular DE.

Should be interesting.

Given all of the microbes and N they may blemish easily, but once going they should flourish.

My experience with castings has shown them to be remarkably stable and benign PH too. Plants love it.

The strain is White Widow Extreme

Thanks everyone this should be sheettastic.
Filling up the pot was like making a mud pie in the driveway back in the day
If this sheet works out and my worm farm grows big enough well sheet my pot fills will be cheap. Even now if I fill a 7 gallon pot with worm poo and perlite and DE it’ll be around $10-$12 I guess.
If she starts to suffer because the sheet stops hitting the fan…er roots cause she ate it all I have back up Nutes I can top dress and teas and all…along with more worm poo too!

Maybe I’ll call her Winnie-The-Poo

You need to find a home brewer friend that all grain brews. Ask him for his spent grains. Worms love this. Makes for awesome compost.

Great idea @WickedAle
Maybe I’ll contact a pub / restaurant that also offers brewing of beer and wine and see if they wanna get rid of the leftovers. I’ve brewed there with some friends 3 or 4 times over the years.
