Re: [Killietalk] need microworm starter culture! looking for microfexstarter too.
Harry, I dunno... I haven't been able to find out a blessed thing about walter
worms in the technical literature. There are also "banana" worms as well.
Traditionally, from the days of Innes, microworms are identified as Panagrellus
silusae, but there must be a very large number of small, ferment-dependent
nematodes out there in the real world. I think I'll go get one from my garden
and bring it into culture... I'll name them "Harry worms" in your honor!
