PURE Worm Castings (OMRI Listed)
According to Scientific Earthworm Farming*: "Earthworms castings are the best imaginable potting soil for greenhouses or houseplants, as well as gardening and farming."
PURE earthworm castings are a natural, soil amendment. Our African Nightcrawlers are fed rich compost, which contains a wide variety of minerals and trace elements. The earthworms digest this material and beneficially alter the material both chemically and physically. The end product is extremely fertile and properly conditioned for best root growth. It contains all elements required for optimum plant growth in water soluble form. Our Premium Earthworm Castings are processed through an 1/8 inch screen resulting in 99% pure castings.
Earthworm castings can help improve soil structure. They improve aeration of the soil because they don't pack together, which allows roots to grow fast and fibrous to promote rapid plant growth. It also allows excellent drainage in soil so roots are less likely to become waterlogged or develop root rot. While improving aeration, earthworm castings also increase the soil's water retention capacity because they contain absorbent organic matter that holds only the necessary amounts of water needed by the roots, while their miniature-football shape allows unnecessary water to easily drain.
Basically, earthworm castings are an excellent all natural plant food. This non-burning, long-lasting organic fertilizer can provide remarkable benefits.
