Worms are still alive!

I did a little digging yesterday, and looks like at least some of the worms in my toilet are doing well and are a healthy pink color. Now I'm curious to see how fast they reproduce and breakdown/condense all the matter composting in there.


  1. Can you tell me about your composting toilet? With worms? I haven't heard of anyone using worms in their toilet. The pH isn't too acidic? How does this work? Thank you.

    1. I haven't either. But I have used them for a long time to compost my kitchen scraps. So I thought I'd give it a try. This batch has been in there for about two weeks and still seems healthy as of this afternoon so I guess it isn't too acidic. I did try to add a good bit of peat moss to help with that. We'll see how it ends up working long term.

  2. Super impressed with yourl blog. Thanks for your efforts and the information!

  3. I'm not sure if they have multiplied much yet, but all the worms are nearly twice as large as when they arrived and looking great. Better yet, the contents of my composting toilet are starting to rapidly looks like a nice pile of worm castings with no discernible remnants of anything else in there. The pile is not shrinking a ton yet, but looking like great compost.
