Hello fellow gardeners,

I wish to share with you all about how I manage to have worm castings tea.

Initially, I tried working it with plastic containers and I found that it is a problem to drain out worm castings tea.

So, I happen to come across used plastic pots with many big holes at the bottom. 

So I decided to work on having to have the worm casting in them.

I started with one plastic pot with no holes for the bottom to  use it to hold the tea and one on top of it for the worm castings.

I finally have many pots stake up like this as show below:

So, I slowly add up to 7 pots . The reason being after every week I could use the lowest pot of  casting and at the same time make use of the tea.

 

 I have to filter the tea which I normally could fish out worms which I will put those worm back to the top pot.

 

Just to give you an idea the worms in one of the pots.

Besides above set up - I would normally throw in coffee and egg shell mixed.

 

Coffee collected free from StarBuck  and egg shell were collected from my kitchen. Mix them up and pour into the warm casting bin. The worms love them alot.
