Can this be used for bedding? 5 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hello All!

I'm new to this site and a potential european worm farmer.

I use to grow flowers and plants and used promix as the growing medium. Would promix be suitable for europeans? The ingredients are:

Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss
(75-85% / vol.)

Perlite - horticultural grade

Vermiculite-horticultural grade

Dolomitic and Calcitic limestone
(pH adjuster)

Wetting Agent


Also, has anyone farmed worms in fabric grow bags? They are used by some nurseries to grow plants/trees. http://www.buyfeltonline.com/product/poly-felt-grow-bag

Thanks in advance for any help!
