It’s a good question. Thanks for asking.

1. It’s Naturally Organic and Odor Free

No Perfumes or scents added or chemically removed. The organic matter consumed by the worms are changed both physically and chemically by the worms Digestive track and is actually homogenized.  It can be used directly form the bag on plants! You can even plant entirely in castings without burning your plants!

3. Significant Microbial/Bacterial Activity

These free living nitrogen fixing bacteria promote healthy “living” soil that provide an optimum growth environment.  Its high microbial activity combined with its structure and trace minerals allow it perform above and beyond any chemical fertilizer or amendment available on the market today.

2. Improved Soil Structure and Aeration

Castings consist of thousands of durable cylindrical shaped pellets that resist packing and keep soil loose. This allows oxygen to permeate and remain in the root zone where it is vitally needed. The drainage is also improved by this non-packed environment.

4.Plant Growth Hormones

Castings contain Auxins and Cytokinins, both of which are natural plant growth hormones. Auxins promote healthy, strong root growth and Cytokinins promote rigorous stem and flower growth.
