If you have followed this website for any length of time, you will know I have been a major fan of the Worm Inn for years now. In case you’re curious how long, it’s been ever since it was invented nearly a decade ago (as I type this) back in the summer of 2008.
Yeah, I suppose it doesn’t hurt that I somehow managed to “inspire” its creation – in a very weird way I might add – but when it comes down to it, what I’ve always loved about it is that it just plain WORKS – really well – and is very easy to use.
As great as Worm Inns are, and as much as I have recommended them over the years, there have always been a handful of nagging concerns about the design – partially based on my own experience with them, and partially due to feedback received from others who have purchased them.
A few prime examples include:
– In certain situations (eg low humidity locations) they can dry out very easily (or at least require a lot of watering).
– They don’t come with a stand (even with the “stand kit” additional supplies need to be purchased).
– The screened lid (an awesome feature in my opinion) can become damaged very easily.
– The unit sometimes doesn’t fit properly on a stand (I only encountered this with the regular Worm Inn)
Well, long story short (more…)
