Pro Comes with all the necessary materials
The Worm Factory 360 comes with all the materials and accessories necessary to start your worm farm, except for food scraps and worms. The included guide explains about all the materials and what and how much to include in the bedding mix.
Pro No previous experience required
In order to start using this composter you don’t need to have any previous experience. It comes with an easy to understand instruction guide and a DVD that explains how to properly take care of the worms. There’s even a coupon included with you can order a batch of worms.
Pro Easy to harvest
Thanks to the stackable system, it is easy to harvest the ready material. The worms by nature search for food going up so, if the bottom tray has the compost ready, just put food for the worms on the upper trays and they will crawl up, leaving the bottom tray with the ready material.
Pro Practically odorless
Since the food leftovers are eaten by the worms instead of rotting, there is practically no smell coming from the composting system.
Pro Takes up little space
Thanks to the 18 by 18 inch footprint, the system can be placed in small areas like a pantry, under stairs or other tight spaces.
Pro Can be expanded over time
If you feel that you need more composting material, then you can expand the composter by buying additional trays and stacking them.
Con Not meant for serious gardening
This composter can’t be expanded horizontally to increase the population of the worms and the output. The output rate should be enough for a small household garden but if you are a serious gardener better look elsewhere.
Con Demands some attention
Since the composting process is being done by worms you have to keep an eye on how healthy the worms are if you want to get excellent composting material and they don't die out.
Con Drainage can get clogged up
The drainage spigot can get clogged up by castings if not cleaned every once in a while.
