I just got finished checking on my “Tiny Tub Two Worm Challenge” (TTTWC) bins. Things seem to be coming along.
Here are my cocoon counts:
Bin #1 – 7 cocoons
Bin #2 – 0 cocoons (remember, my worms disappeared early on and I decided to keep it as a comparison bin)
Bin #3 – 6 cocoons
Temperatures down in the basement have been hovering around 17 or 18 C (~63/64 F) – so still on the cool side.
The Red Worms in the two worm bins are big and healthy looking now.
This past weekend I actually set up another TTTWC bin – this time with my 7 year old daughter. She will be keeping this one up in her room, which is definitely warmer than the basement. It will be very interesting to see if there is any difference in reproductive rate.
I would love to hear how things are coming along for other participants!
Please add your comments below. Be sure to include 1) start date, 2) temperature (if you’ve been able to measure or at least estimate it) 3) # cocoons, 4) # of hatchlings (if any yet) – and any other details you want to share (eg foods you’ve been adding etc).
