[Killietalk] Re: Microworm cultures
Actually, I was refering to the container that you raise them in.
I use Rubbermaid Servin'Saver 1.6 pint containers. They have a good solid
snap lid. I cut about a one inch diameter hole in the lid and stuff the hole
full of filter floss. This lets the air pass through, but keeps critters out.
You have to be careful not to disturb the floss when opening and closing the
container, and always check it after closing it to verify that there are no
gaps. This has always worked for me. I use a thick slurry of oatmeal with a
pinch of yeast to start the culture. After the culture gets off to a good
start, I don't do much to it. If the worms stop climbing very far up the side, I
add a little more water with a spray bottle. If it looks like the culture is
getting old, I just stir it up. I might also add another pinch of yeast to
reinvigorate it. I have been able to keep them going for at least 6 months with
