WORM VERMICOMPOST

BENEFITS OF WORM CASTINGS

Worm castings (a.k.a. worm manure, vermicompost, or worm excreta) are rich in plant nutrients, trace minerals and growth enhancers, and incorporating castings into the soil significantly increases microbial life in the root zone. Worm castings are extremely beneficial in that they stimulate plant growth more than any other natural product, enhance the ability of your soil to retain water, and also inhibit root diseases such as root rot. The humus in worm castings removes toxins and harmful fungi and bacteria from the soil. Worm Castings therefore have the ability to fight off plant diseases.

One of the best features of worm castings is you can use as much as you want without the fear of burning tender young plants as other fertilizers are known to do. Unlike other animal manure and artificial fertilizers it is absorbed very easily and almost instantaneously by plants. The amazing thing is, that while the nutrients are easily available they are at the same time naturally endowed with a slow release feature, causing the nutrient benefits to last up to 2 months! This benefit is put in place during the digestion process of the earthworm.

As the organic matter passes through the alimentary canal of the worm, a thin layer of oil coats the material, later eroding over a period of 2 months. The best of both worlds, immediate and long-lasting benefits! Ordinary composts do not have this benefit, they are placed in the garden to enrich the soil and plants, the available nutrients are quickly leached into the soil as soon as rainfall occurs or irrigation systems are turned on. Vermicompost provides a time-released benefit, slowly nurturing the plants over a greater length of time!

Another natural benefit of worm castings is the ability to fix heavy metals in organic waste, which prevents plants from absorbing more of these chemical compounds than they need. The compounds can then be released later when the plants need them. A natural protection for plants set in place by the Creator!

You need only use a small amount in or around your house plants, vegetables and flowers, as the humic acid in worm castings are able to stimulate plant growth, even in low concentrations. Humic acid also stimulates the development of micro flora populations in the soil. The miracles of the earthworm are easily seen in the beautiful growth and yields of your plants. Extremely dark and rich in texture, tests on worm castings have shown the nitrogen content to be 5 times greater than ordinary topsoil, the phosphate 7 times greater, potash 11 times, and magnesium 3 times. Castings will not burn even when applied directly to the most delicate plants. Definitely the finest soil conditioner available. Great for use in your entire garden! Completely odor-free and 100% organic! Use for indoor plants, and container gardening, as well.

All these benefits and more:

  • Worm Castings improve the structure of soil.
  • Worm Castings increase drought resistance.
  • Worm Castings can reduce irrigation cost up to 50% by retaining moisture in the soil.
  • Earthworm Castings may be applied to phosphate sensitive plants.

Worm castings are the most nutrient rich fertilizer known to man, stimulating plant growth more than any other natural product on the market. They are 99% pure, natural, and organic, making earthworm castings one of the most highly sought after organic fertilizers today, as more people seek to grow organic and healthy plants in their gardens. Worm castings are the original natural fertilizer put in place by the Creator since the beginning of time, discovered by man to be extremely beneficial in the plant and gardening world.

 

As composting worms consume organic substances, they excrete tiny pellets called worm castings, also known as natural or organic fertilizer. Organic gardeners rely on this natural fertilizer because it balances the soil’s PH and helps retain moisture. Plants love organic fertilizer made from worm castings! Worm Castings have 5-11 times more nitrogen, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, potash, and magnesium than topsoil, along with many other trace elements and micro-nutrients, such as manganese, copper, zinc, cobalt, borax, iron, carbon and nitrates. This fertilizer is naturally balanced, full of bio-accessible nutrients. Each of these nutrients has been naturally processed as the earthworms digest the organic matter in soil, to change it into a more concentrated and easily absorbed form than naturally available in plain soil. The minerals are water-soluble and time-released, so they are easily available to the plant when the plant needs them, both immediately and long-term. This benefit is added to the castings during the amazing digestive process of the earthworm in which a special oil deposited on the castings. This layer erodes over a period of 2 months. So although the plant nutrients are immediately available, they are slowly released to last longer. In addition the earthworms deposit beneficial soil microbes in their castings which work symbiotically with plant roots to assist them in extracting nutrients from the soil. One more benefit! Worm castings are ALIVE with beneficial bacteria and other organisms that actually pull additional nutrients from the air.

 

Earthworm castings can provide performance above and beyond that of artificial commercial fertilizers, or even many natural fertilizers. At the same time, it is completely safe to all plants, animals and people in any concentration. In fact, when used in greater concentration than produced in nature, it has been found that worm castings have great benefits, including :

 

Vigorous Plant Growth

Fibrous Root System Stimulation

Improved Soil Aeration

Provides Beneficial Control Over Plant Pathogens and Harmful Roots-eating Nematodes

Yes, worms castings are the most safe and natural fertilizer available. Worm castings are safe to handle and contain no chemical or unpleasant odor, as some may worry, just the slight scent of rich, fertile all natural soil, similar to the wonderful smell in a forest after a rain. The bacteria in the alimentary canal of the earthworm transforms the organic waste they consume, producing this terrific natural fertilizer. The chemical changes that the organic wastes undergo include deodorizing and neutralizing. This means that the pH of the castings is 7 (neutral) and the castings are odorless. The worm castings also contain the bacteria, so the process is continued in the soil, and microbiological activity is promoted. This organic fertilizer is safe! There is no need to fear overuse or misuse, they will not burn tender pants and roots, killing the plants off, as commercial fertilizers can. So you can rest assured using worm castings in your garden, potted plants, anywhere you grow you favorite vegetables or flowers, they are safe, natural, and 100% beneficial!
