Re: [Killietalk] Magic Worm Bedding
The bedding is quite dry in the box and therefore 3 pounds for a box of it.
That is enough to start up an18 by 18 by 4" deep commercial fishbox styro
for a nice worm culture. Trry http://www.magicproducts.com/bedding.htm and
sales at magicproducts_com
They are in Amherst Jct. Wis 54407
May be cheaper from them than walmart?
The stuff is very good.
