worm factory

Has anyone ever used a Worm Factory like the one advertised on http://carls-permaculture.com and if so, how fast do the worms double in population?

I never used it, but my uncle was a worm farmer, he use manual and traditional ways. But it works too.

I've never used this type of worm farm but I did have a small worm farm once. The worms did OK but they didn't really multiply because their container wasn't large enough. You need to make sure you have a container large enough to allow for the population to increase and for the worms to have enough room to tunnel around, eat, and what ever else worms do.

I've had a friend who grew redworms, I don't know about earthworms or whatever. But the redworms are really easy to cultivate, and you can get so many, so quickly. Basically, you just need one of those medium sized recycling bins, a starter population, some medium, and you go from there. It's surprisingly easy to maintain- every time you have some sort of fruit/vegetable scrap, all you need to do is just toss it in the bin, and keep it covered.

It doesn't produce any foul odor, or anything, and all you need to really do is turn the dirt over every now and then, to prevent compacting, I guess. The dirt they produce is amazing fertilizer-wise, and in my case, the worms that are 'born' make for great fish food.

I've never used that one but I've made my own in the past, and they worked ok but not great. They ate a lot of scraps. We had trouble keeping them fed!

If you're just doing this for fishing or something similar, you should till a portion of your yard, and fertilize it, then just dig up clumps of it to reveal big nightcrawlers whenever you need them.

I've never tried it, but logically, I would imagine they would do better or worse based on the conditions just like any sort of 'pet' might.
