pH buffer/grit is a most welcome and necessary addition to every worm farm to promote healthy and happy worms. It’s important to keep the pH levels in their environment between 6-7 and provide the necessary minerals and nutrients they require. If conditions in the bin become too acidic, the worms can get sick or even die. Worms thrive in a neutral to slightly acidic pH.
pH buffer/grit formulations often consist of glacial rock dust and oyster shell flour. These two products together help in overall worm health in the following ways:
- provides essential minerals,
- Neutralizes acidity
- Increases pH
- Improves airflow
- Aids in gizzard health and biological reproduction
- The grit also aids in their digestion as worms don’t actually have teeth
- Provides a great source of calcium for the production of cocoons, and to neutralize the acidity of the foods they consume with the help of their calciferous gland.
