– Make piles long “buns” (20 ft long, 3 ft wide) with 1-2 pounds of worms per pile, added at the start. Their numbers will increase exponentially as time goes by.
– Add the pond water as often as you like – depends on how many water changes you want to do out of your pond. At minimum, once per week.
– Throw bamboo leaves into the pile to increase IMO’s (indigenous microorganisms).
– No turning the pile. The worms turn it.
– Shade is better for the piles, but they also work in the sun.
