 As  mentioned  in  one  of  Romi's  previous  posts,  I  found  some  worms  from  store  bought  vermicompost
 I  collected  some  and  cultured  them  in  the  same  media
 here  are  some  pics:

 These  worms  are  reproducing  rapidly  even  in  warm  summer  temps  and  reaching  a  max  size  of  1  cm
 How  do  I  decide  if  they  are  white  worms  or  grindal  worms?
 Please  guide  me

 If  they  are  one  inch  or  above  then  they  are  whites.

 I  hope  so
 because  if  they  are  white  worms,  its  gonna  be  hard  to  keep  the  culture  going
 but  they  surely  reach  a  max  size  of  1cm

 Yes....
 I  lost  my  culture  8  days  ago
 When  I  went  forward  to  increase  the  size  of  my  grindal  worm  culture,  I  took  some  cowdung  manure,  organic  manure  and  a  liitle  bit  of  soil  from  my  garden  to  bring  it  to  right  consistency.
 I  used  all  my  old  culture  hoping  to  see  the  worms  flourish  quickly
 But  not  even  a  single  worm  survived  the  next  day
 
 I  totally  forgot  that  my  garden  is  often  treated  with  termite  control  pesticides
 I  lost  my  lovely  friends  all  because  of  my  ignorance  and  carelessness

 Don't  feel  bad  pal.  There  are  so  many  small  things  involved  in  a  project  like  this.  One  or  the  other  tends  to  go  wrong.  At  least  next  time  u  know  one  thing  that  u  are  NOT  going  to  do!
 
 It  isn't  easy  doing  things  on  your  own  anway.  look  at  most  hobbyists,  they  just  buy  everything,  very  few  try  DIY  stuff,  and  even  fewer  succeed.  The  one  that  do  inspire  others,  and  there  is  always  a  way  of  doing  better  next  time.   Thumb Up

 Peat  works  best  as  a  medium  for  most  cultures.  Try  getting  some..  
 Feeling  sorry  for  your  Grindal  culture.
