Should I stir (aerate) my vermicompost?
I'm a new vermicomposter =)
I'm in subtropics area (Indonesia) so I put my vermicompost in cardboard box.
Since I was still in experimental, I made two vermicomposts in two cardboard boxes.
The first one I feed with shredded paper and food scraps, and the second I feed with aged cow manure.
I feed them slightly every two days. My lovely worm is Eisenia foetida.
My question is should I stir my vermicompost periodically to give aeration for them since I’m afraid of disturbing them or make them stressed.
Doesn't the stirring make the castings mix with food?
Please help me and I’m waiting your reply.
