Redworms are nature's master composters.
Redworms are nature's master composters. One pound of redworms by The Worm Farm can consume organic waste at the incredible rate of 1/2 to 1 lb per day and also leave behind natures ultimate soil amendment and plant growth enhancer - castings. Redworm Castings condition the soil and resist leaching and compaction, while their long lasting nutrients are easily absorbed by plants.

Some short Redworm facts:

Proper name: Eisenia fetida. AKA "compost worms" "red wigglers" "manure worms" and most commonly "redworms".
Life span: 3 - 5 years, but there have been university studies that have shown at least one worm to be 13 years old!
Your worms will take a week or so to adjust to their new environment before they become thoroughly active.
One worm can produce up to 5 cocoons per week, and each cocoon will have 2-3 worms.
A cocoon will hatch in an average of 45 days, and baby worms will need another six-10 weeks to become adult breeders.
Under optimum conditions, 1 pound of happy and active redworms (approximately 1000) can create approximately 10 pounds of red worms in about 3-5 months.
Under non-optimal conditions (see FAQs area and Info PDF files), the time needed can be much longer for your worm population to expand.
