  • dendrabena`s.

    Could anyone advise me please the best way to keep dendrabena worms, i have a kilo that i need to store but don`t have the option of a worm bank.....
    Is there anything that can be added to the soil/peat they were delivered in to keep them in good condition?
    Regards matthew

    Keep them cool and dry with a little moisture in the soil only. Feed them a very small amount of mashed potato if you are planning on keeping them for over a month

      as friskyfish says keep cool and in the dark like on the floor in a corner of the garage, i keep mine in a fridge and just keep putting the unused ones in their tubs/bags back in the fridge and they last for up to 6 weeks

            Never had much luck keeping them when they have been fed mash, I always use soft Pears sliced up and have kept them for 3 or 4 months. I use an atomiser for keeping the peat wet.

              I've got some in the shed i've had since september!!
              Just keep them cool in plenty of soil and an occasional feed of mashed potato - no salt or butter of course!!
              I keep them in a large plastic bucket with small breather holes in the lid, not too big or else they escape.

                Hi there,

                You can buy worm feed produced by worm UK

                also try one of Mosella Worm bait buckets

                I have stored my worms for about 4 month still going strong

                Cheers
                Paul

                    I just keep them in a tub, make sure they have plenty of room. I chopped up a few bits of potato for them to eat.

                    Ive had them for 3-4 months now.

                      Just make sure you check regularly for Dead worms if you leave them in they will all die quickly!!!

                        Keep them on a garage floor in the bag they came in, keep them on the damp side and feed regularly with a cheap instant mash potato mixed to the consistency of thick gravy. They will breed and you should be able to keep them for as long as you want.
