We offer the African Nightcrawlers in a starter kit in order to increase their chance of survival during transport, and post-purchase. Having a starter kit also helps you achieve the optimal conditions of a healthy worm bin much more easily. By providing you with a functional setup, you will have everything you need to get started, rather than going from scratch. With a starter kit, all you have to do is feed them weekly, maintain the moisture levels, and harvest the vermicast every month or so.
Our starter kits start at only P895. The Micro is suited for small expermients. However, it might not be enough to reduce your waste output. For that, we would recommend starting with a Standard kit. However, if your household is larger than 2 people, we’d recommend getting the Plus. Each Urban Worm Bin Plus would be enough for about 3 people. For larger households, or families that produce more organic scraps than the average, having more than one Urban Worm Bin Plus helps you process more waste, and ensures you aren’t overfeeding your worms.
Your needs depend on your organic waste output. For a household of 3 that outputs an average amount of scraps, for example, should be fine with one Urban Worm Bin Plus. For larger households, multiple Urban Worm Bin Plus bins would be more suitable. Also, if you’ll be processing the organic waste of just one person, the standard kit is recommended. On the other hand, the micro is great for those who are on a tight budget, and would like to learn more about worms. However, if you would like to greatly reduce your waste, we recommend going with either the Standard or the Plus.
On average, it takes about a month to harvest your bin. When most of the original material has turned into vermicast, you may either add more bedding, or harvest the bin. Your bin will be ready for harvest when you’re satisfied with the amount of vermicast already produced, or when it’s almost full to the top with earthy and crumbly organic fertilizer.
Red wigglers are not available in the Philippines. This is for two reasons. First and foremost, it has not been legally imported into the Philippines. Secondly, alternatives such as African Nightcrawlers are much more suited to the Philippine climate, as determined by numerous studies. As a result, we exclusively use, and sell African Nightcrawlers, or Eudrilus eugeniae in our products.
Red Wigglers are less tolerant of the heat, being a temperate worm, while African Nightcrawlers are much more heat-tolerant. Furthermore, African Nightcrawlers are larger, and tend to consume waste more quickly, most especially in warmer climates such as the Philippines. Thus, African Nightcrawlers are much more effective in our conditions.
