Well, it’s been three days since I started my first “worm cocoon hatching experiment” so today was the day for removing the two bins from the refrigerator (according to my schedule for this particular trial). Of course, it only made sense that it would also be a good day for checking on the hatching status of the cocoons in all the systems.
I thought perhaps that we might see some hatching in the room temperature system containing cantaloupe, but as far as I can tell there has not been hatching in any of the four bins yet.
Moving forward, it will probably be a good idea for me to check on all the systems daily so that we don’t miss too much (would obviously defeat the purpose if I waited a week or two, only to find that most of the cocoons have hatched out in all the systems! haha).
Anyway – that’s pretty much it for this update. I will write another post once there is actually something to report on!
