WHAT IS VERMICOMPOST ?
Vermicompost is the final product of the composting process using worms and it is one of the best organic growth mediums available.
The worms used for creating vermicompost in the hot tropical climate of Thailand are African Nightcrawlers.
The finished Vermicompost has a ph of approx 6.0 – 7.0 and can be used on any crops/plants/trees/lawn/orchards safely as it does not burn unlike chemical based fertilizers.
Our Vermicompost is screened to a large size of 1/4 inch- this means that there will be many worm eggs and juvenile worms in the final product for the end customer. This will benefit your soil!
The vermicompost is approximately 70-80% castings and undigested compost.
It contains a lot of water soluble nutrients as well as a ton of beneficial microbes that are easily absorbed by the roots system of all crops.
The worms ingest the organic matter and coat it in a mucus after excretion – locking in the nutrients.

CANNABIS AND HEMP CULTIVATION IN THAILAND
As the government in Thailand has recently changed the laws regarding the growing of Cannabis and hemp products for medicinal purposes – vermicompost is one of the best amendments and soil conditioners for its cultivation. We have supplied several government controlled grows throughout Thailand already. These crops require clean soil and mainly organic based fertilisers. Our worm castings are mainly blended into bulk growing media and top dressed throughout the plants life. Also using worm castings to brew aerated compost teas and compost extracts is far better then using manure or basic compost as it is far more diverse which yields a better brew.
Here are a few of the Thailand based cannabis & hemp grows that used our vermicompost as an input in their soil blends. Thanks to Mr Ryan Doran (Underground empire) and www.taratera.com for the photos!
