Hey

Got a 55 litre indoor living soil bed, would like to add worms but not sure what ones to use, the ones that seem to be available in the uk are Red wigglers and European night crawlers, anyone know if these will survive indoors? Some websites say to keep them below 10 degrees C.Β 
Cheers

@coot-juice Both species will survive. If you have to choose only one go for the red wigglers. They are more tolerant in environmental changes, reproduce faster, eat more and are happy to crawl to the surface of your bed to feed.

@mitsos is there any particular food they seem love? Also do you have to provide some kind of bedding area for them?

@coot-juice If you have healthy soil they will thrive, no special bedding is needed. Compost is their favorite food, unfinished compost. They also go crazy about grains. You will have to topdress your bed to maintain a healthy population.

My worms love this food #1 avocados. #2 bananas #3 pumpkin or watermelon (I remove the seeds first ) It seems that when they eat this food they get happier and horney and start making babies.

I've had the same Red Wigglers in my outdoor wormery for about 25 years.Β  I say the same, I have never had to add any more than the original bag of 500 I got when I set it up.Β  I've moved house alot and they have moved with me each time.Β  I give them all of my veg and fruit waste (except for citrus and chilli peppers). Not sure about indoors though, they live in a wormery in my garden, under a little bit of shade and where they are not exposed directly to pouring rain (which happens alot in the UK). They have survived all kinds of weather, from the hotest of summer days to the coldest of winter nights, snow, rain and hail. They are amazingly resilient.Β  Good luch, I'd be interested to hear how well they do indoors. Cheers.
