  1. what vermin are you using to compost?
    I have a worm bin for vermicomposting, which gives me worm castings.

    I actually had the same question today though, I cut down a tree that had carpenter ants and the middle of it is full of what looks like worm castings, but I guess instead of worm poo it's ant poo. I wonder how good this stuff wuld be in the garden.
     
  2. I'm about to buy a product that uses earth worms to make vermicompost?

    Supposedly vermicompost and earth worm castings are a different thing? Atleast that's what I thought when I googled it.

    I googled it again... and I feel kinda dumb now...

    "Most gardeners will use the term worm castings interchangeably with vermicompost. Many products will market themselves as worm castings despite the fact that they are probably vermicompost."

    from: https://smartgardenhome.com/gardening-how-to/compost/vermicompost-vs-worm-castings/

    So basically the same thing
     
  3. Yes, vermicompost is a broad term, but most people are referring to worms and worm castings when using it.
     
  4. Nah, vermicompost is composted material that then gets worked through by the worms.
    More NPK and a broader array of micro life than straight castings.
    Both are awesome for gardening. For teas, most use castings, but IMO VC will work just fine :thumbsup:
     
  5. Worm Castings=worm poop
    Vermicomposting=the process of making worm poop
    Vermicomposting creates worm castings.
    One is not better than the other. They are the exact same.
