Pachamama Earthworm Castings are the end result of the breakdown of organic matter by Red Wiggler Worms. These worms are fed a healthy array of plant-based material and dairy manure, making a superior, naturally rich compost that helps to retain moisture and provide nitrogen that is is more easily absorbed than other composts or fertilizers. Apply Pachamama Earthworm Castings when germinating seeds, blending potting soil, and transplanting everything from vegetables to roses and trees. It can also be used to brew a compost tea ideal for houseplants, annual color, and fruiting plants.
