9 Jan 2021 Garden Update

I learnt from the Singapore Vermicomposting Facebook group that a store in Serangoon North was selling boxes of worms for $10, so I visited the store on the 4th of Jan.

PetMart Pte Ltd – 151 Serangoon North Ave 2 #01-79 Singapore 550151

Above is the box the worms came in.

The comment in the Facebook group said there’d be about 20 to 30 worms in the box, so out of curiosity, I decided to count how many there were. Below is what they looked like after they were tipped out of the box.The Facebook group mentioned two types of worms, Malaysian Blue Worms and African Night Crawlers. I’m guessing what I purchased were the former because they had a really interesting shiny blue colour to them.

Turns out there were about 85 worms!

They’ve been popped into the compost bin together with some wilted salad leaves and a banana peel.

The little “finger” is getting larger!

There are little leaves starting to grow on the stems.
