Vermicompost is created through the composting process using specific species of worms, usually red wigglers (Eisenia fetida) or European nightcrawlers (Eisenia hortensis). The worms consume organic waste, such as vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, and manure, and excrete nutrient-rich castings, which form the vermicompost.

Vermicompost is the product of earthworms processing organic materials. It is a widely popular and extensively used natural fertilizer. Vermicompost increases nutrients needed by the plant to thrive. If your plants have ever suffered from a nutrient deficiency, vermicompost is the way to heal your plant and make it healthier. Starting seeds can also benefit greatly from adding vermicompost, as the extra nutrients gives them a boost and promotes their growth. It is also great for potted plants, as it can be mixed with soil, cocopeat and even sand, its slow and steady supply of nutrients make it a great addition to your potting mix. Vermicompost also helps in sustaining a healthy microbial community, full of beneficial fungi and bacteria that improve the health of the soil. It can also be used for soil amendment and improving soil structure, as it increases porosity which improves aeration, drainage and prevents compaction which is when the soil is too strong for the roots to properly grow.
