Harness the power of the worm!!

Worm composters (vermicomposters) are an easy and efficient way to quickly compost a variety of food and other scraps found around the home. The resulting worm castings create a nutrient rich compost to use as a powerful soil additive.

The HOTFROG Living Composter is the 2nd generation of worm composters created by FCMP Outdoor. We’ve incorporated some terrific design updates in our latest version:

  • The 3 gallon trays have a moisture control water retention channel running around the outside of each tray. Instead of allowing the liquids to fall directly through the tray this channel gathers moisture to prevent the bedding from drying out along the edges.
  • When it’s time to expand your worm farm a collection of 40 angled tunnels extend down from the base of each tray directly into the bedding of the tray below. This provides ample opportunity for worms to migrate between trays.
  • Aeration is important for happy worms and good compost. A series of support points are molded into the lower edge of the trays. This raises the trays slightly allowing 360 degrees of airflow across the bedding.
  • The double walled lid and base provide excellent insulation against temperature swings helping to maintain an ideal environment. 
Happy worms are productive worms.

In addition to our updated features the HOTFROG Living Composter has all the features traditionally found in worm composters.
  • The liquid collected in the reservoir base is known as worm tea. Mix 1 part tea with 1 part water to create an excellent fertilizer for plants.
  • The speed and efficiency of the vermicomposting process keeps typical composing odour to a minimum and allows the unit to be kept inside and used year-round.
  • Constructed from BPA free UV inhibited recycled polyethylene the plastic is contact safe and will not degrade if outside under direct sunlight. The maple hardwood legs are stained and urethane sealed for years of good looks.

Unfortunately, despite all the great features of the HOTFROG Living Composter we are unable to send the worms needed to make it work. Standard courier speeds are too slow to ship live worms. To purchase the red wiggler worms for your composter a quick internet search should help you find a company that can ship them to you quickly.
