How much do you need?
When it comes to worm castings, a little goes a long way. Here are a couple tips to figure out how much you need for your plants.
- House plants - apply a small handful around the roots of each plant (around 1 lb per 8 plants)
- Raised beds - apply a small handful around the roots of each plant (around 1 lb per 10 square feet)
- This equates to around 3-4 lbs for a standard 4x8 bed
- Seeding - mix in 10% worm castings to your normal seed starting mix (around 0.75-1 lbs per seed tray)
- Transplanting - add a small handful to each hole before placing the plants (around 1 lb per 8 plants)
