So i did a bunch of reading 4-5 months ago on vermicompost so i figured i'd give it a try. i'm doing the standard 2 large tupperware containers with holes drilled into the bottom, sides, and top for it to breath and allow some water drippage and drainage. i started with a handful of earth worms from my yard. I red that Red Worms are best for this but couldnt find anyone locally (Florida) that had them. i started with some leaves and store bought soil. Put wet paper clippings and vegetable clippings. I had a really bad problem with fruit flies when i first started. From what i read online this is because i wasn't covering my veggies well enough with wet pap...so i started putting bigger strips of wet newspaper to cover the veggies. Flies are less apparent now but i have a bunch of maggots! I haven't dug into the soil because i dont wanna disrupt anything so i'm not sure if the worms are still there or not. So my questions are: - What am i doing wrong? (broad question i know haha) - Is maggot compost ok? or should i dump it and start over? - i have this outside, under a wooden table...do i need more sun? light? thanks in advance!
