What are Pure Earthworm Castings?
Wiggle Worm Soil Builder Pure Earthworm Castings Organic Fertilizer is an all purpose natural fertilizer that comes to you straight from nature with no alterations whatsoever. Our nightcrawlers are fed a very rich organic material which contains a wide variety of minerals and trace elements. The earthworms digest this material and in its' passage through the worm, it is beneficially altered both chemically and physically. The end product is 'super humus' an extremely fertile organic fertilizer properly conditioned for best root growth, containing in rich proportion and water soluble form, all the elements required of the earth for optimum plant nutrition.
Pure Earthworm castings, as stated, contain rich proportions of water soluble nutrients. This is a primary reason for being able to provide incredible results. Wiggle Worm Soil Builder allows plants to quickly and easily absorb all essential nutrients and trace elements. This is possible because the worm grinds and uniformly mixes the nutrients and trace elements in simple forms, so plants need only minimal effort to obtain them. This is not the case with most other natural fertilizers. Though they may have many nutrients and/or higher analyses, the ability of plants to optimally use them is limited because they are not broken down to the degree in which the earthworm is able to provide them.
As well as an abundance of available nutrients, Wiggle Worm Soil Builder Pure Earthworm Castings also provide a perfect mix of nutrients that are not readily available, but present for long term nutritional needs. This allows plants to feed as needed for weeks and months at a time, depending on the plant.
Chemical fertilizers usually provide only available synthetic nutrients, much of which are quickly lost into the soil with watering, as a plants' root system can only absorb so much. Chemical fertilizers are most often detrimental to soil microbiology, by-passing and often destroying much of its beneficial microbial and bacterial activity. At the same time, many of these synthetic nutrients are absorbed into your plants and food. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides used in both farms and gardens have become our country's leading cause of water pollution.
Another point in favor of Wiggle Worm Soil Builder Pure Earthworm Castings is the high concentration of beneficial bacteria and microbes added to them by the earthworm in the digestive process. These microscopic creatures help different elements of the soil work in conjunction with each other to create healthy, working soil that provides the best possible atmosphere for optimum growth.
Yet another benefit of Wiggle Worm Soil Builder Pure Earthworm Castings is their ability to improve soil structure. These miniature football shaped particles improve aeration of the soil as they don't pack together. This allows roots the ability to grow fast and fibrous which promotes rapid plant growth. It also allows for excellent drainage in soil so roots don't become waterlogged or develop root rot. While improving aeration, Wiggle Worm Soil Builder Pure Earthworm Castings also increases the soil's water retention capacity as they contain absorbent organic matter that holds only the necessary amounts of water needed by the roots, while their shape allows unnecessary water to easily drain.
The simple fact is that Earthworm Castings were created by nature for the purpose of promoting optimum plant growth and everything required to provide it, is found in them. When you concentrate this odorless, non-burning miracle of nature in greater concentrations than usually found in nature, the results are truly spectacular. This is why we offer a money-back guarantee. Demand PURE worm castings. Demand The Best Wiggle Worm Soil Builder earthworm castings.
Soon to be known as the "World's Greatest Organic Fertilizer!" Wiggle Worm Soil Builder PURE earthworm castings are surely Mother Nature's best kept growing secret. You need only use a small amount in or around your houseplants, vegetables and flowers. The miracles of the earthworm are easily seen in the beautiful growth and yields of your plants. The nutrients in our earthworm castings are plentiful. Most importantly, these nutrients are perfectly balanced in two forms. One form can be immediately absorbed by the plant as if it were directly injected and the other is able to provide nutrition which slowly feeds the plant for long periods of time. This soil builder is very cost effective because small amounts provide incredible results and last a long time.

Worm Gold Plus has been my first choice brand for years. But with limited availability here on Amazon, I decided to look at other options. I received in my compost tea kit I ordered this year, a couple of pounds worth from a brand called Organic Solutions. It is also not listed in quantity on Amazon. I finally settled on the 30 lbs bag from Wiggle Worm and took a chance and ordered it. Sold By Amazon with Prime Shipping it was only $24. What a bargain for 30 lbs. I was such a good price with good feedback I had to try it. So now I have 3 brands on hand to compare. If you don’t see it listed for $24 be sure to check out “new available from other sellers”.
Here are some photos of all 3. And here are my observations:
None of the castings have a bad odor. All of them smell earthy and nice. They all have a nice dark chocolatey brown color.
Worm Gold Plus - The bag I have is much more compacted than the other 2 brands. I have to break it apart to use it. There are few clearly defined castings. It is a bit thick like clay. It takes a bit of work and time to break the clods apart especially for adding to your soil mixes where you may want a finer texture. The issue I have with it is that it is/has or is heading toward going anaerobic conditions.
Organic Solution - These castings were fine and moist and easy to flow thru your fingers after grabbing a handful. There were lots of little bits of what looks like woody material mixed in. If this material is there to foster and grow more fungi then I will have to say that it is my favorite. There are a lot of little critters running around that you can see with the naked eye too. These castings are produced in California by a family owned company in smaller batches. The food source given to the worms are pre-consumer waste stream products that are free from toxins and contaminants. It is high in chiton and microbes that use chiton as a food source. Supposedly these microbes will live on your plants and provide a deterrent to pests landing on your plants for dislike of getting eaten by these microbes. Also when worms consume chiton it is broken down into chitonase which is then absorbed by the plants and when aphids and the likes begin to feed on the plants that have chitonase in their systems, it as an enzyme will begin to dissolve their exoskeletons. High chitonase worm castings are an excellent natural insect repellent. Supposedly you can put them 1/4” thick on fire any beds to get rid of them! Well I tried it and it actually worked. 3 days later the ant bed was abandoned. I think this has to be my favorite brand of all. I limit using these to my compost teas and prized plantings. But to get 30 lbs worth would cost around $40 or more plus shipping. This is the best stuff around IMO, but I was looking for good quality bulk castings to add in quantity to my transplants and garden beds.
Unco Industries Wiggle Worm Castings - These are moist and of a fine texture. It is very consistent in appearance. It is produced by UNCO Industries out of Oregon. They have been in business since 1976. These are also very good quality castings. For bulk application rates these can’t be beat for the price if you order it from Amazon for $24 per 30 lb bag shipped Prime. I have ordered 3 bags of these this year and plan on ordering more. Thank you Amazon.
5 stars for an affordable, quality product. Just what I was looking for. Now to get that garden growing with some record size and flavored veggies and fruits. Happy Gardening!
While worm castings are rich in nitrogen, I would never use them as a single source of nitrogen. Will it add organic material and micronutrients to your soil? Yes! That's always a good thing. But it shouldn't be your single source of fertilizer.
I like to work this into the soil as best as I can and then top with a layer of mulch. For containers, I just mix it in well with the potting mix. You want this to get to the roots of your plants so they'll absorb the chemical that kills insects. I'm interested to see if this will help with fungus gnats since I always seem to be cursed with a fresh bag of potting mix that contains nothing but gnats...
The price is expensive, but it beats buying and spraying pesticides, no matter how organic they may be. I'm an inherently lazy gardener so something I can just add to the soil that will keep large infestations at bay is worth the price. I bought two 30-lbs bags this year for our very old orange tree so we'll see if it helps with that as well.
