Why is there a divider in the Subpod?

The Subpod Divider has a number of functions:

  • Less disturbance to the worms. If adding food waste frequently (every one or 2 days), alternating sides minimises disturbing the worms. 
  • Collect your compost. When the system is getting full, stop feeding one side. After two weeks, most of the worms will migrate to the fed side once they have finished composting the waste on the unfed side.  This allows easy harvest of the castings from the unfed side without having to separate worms.
  • Compost onions, citrus and spicy foods on one side to off-gas, allowing the worms to migrate to the other side if the oils in these foods are still a little strong for them. 
  • The support stay that props the lid open fastens to the Subpod Divider, so the lid won’t slam shut while working in the Subpod.
