Also this chap sells "miniature redworm" cultures (plus grindle worms,
white worms, vinegar worms &c):
keithgregg at hotmail_com
He told me by e-mail that miniature redworms produce baby worms the size of
adult whiteworms. I've cultured whiteworms successfully but the "miniature
redworm" I know nothing about except what is stated at websites like
windle. I presume everyone's well aware the "redworm" used in composts,
even if not raised in composts, excrete a yellow toxin that fish & herps
find distasteful, & which smell vile to human noses so there's no mistaking
them. If the "miniaturized" redworm is really just this compost worm raised
under stunting circumstances, it might not be appropriate for feeding --
I'm just wondering.
