I’ve heard for years that this is the safest source of nutrients because it won’t burn. I have other questions though.
I have a worm bed in an old metal tub. I always incorporate this valuable asset in my grows. But what am I really putting in my girls by using it?
I’ve always been told it’s an excellent source of N, but what about the rest of the nutes that I know must be in the castings? Bananas, for instance, are good for potassium. Will this affect the percentage of P I am using? Does the vegetative material I put in the bed change the nutrient makeup of the castings, or do the worms only leave a certain by-product?
This stems from me wondering if I should pay even closer attention to what I put in for my worms. I know the basics…no animal products, no citrus and all the other stuff, but is there a way to adjust what the worms provide me by what I provide to them?
Not sure if I’m just over thinking things or not, so I decided to put this thought out and see what y’all think.
All thoughts are welcome, but if anyone has actual facts about it, I would enjoy seeing references to back up the idea.
