Description

The HOTFROG Essential Living Composter is the 3rd generation of worm composters created by FCMP
Outdoor.

Building on the tremendous success of the original “Classic” Living Composter

  •  A moisture control water retention channel runs 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 living composter a collection of 52 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


In addition to our proprietary features both models of the HOTFROG Living Composter have all the
features traditionally found in top end vermicomposters.

1) 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.

2) The speed and efficiency of the vermicomposting process keeps typical composing odor to a minimum and

allows the unit to be kept inside and used year-round.

3) Constructed from BPA free, UV inhibited, recycled polypropylene the plastic is contact safe and will not degrade if outside under direct sunlight. Legs are made of this material as well.

  • Dimensions: 15″ x 15″ x 22″
  • Each Tray holds approx. 3 gallons
  • Comes with one brick of coconut coir and shredded paper to use as bedding. Just add worms!
  • Made in Canada
  • Free Shipping  *within the lower 48 states.

Works as shhould

It seems to work as should. I just ordered a couple more bins to expand it. I'm pretty excited to see how this grows

Arrived in great shape

I’m getting the hang of raising red wigglers. I did not have any newspaper to line the composter with but substituted paper towels. I think my first feeding included some vegetable scraps that probably needed to ripen a little. I have a kitchen can for future worm food. I’m amazed at how quickly they can disappear when I take the lid off. Fun to watch! Thanks Uncle Jim.

Great anniversary gift

We got this for our parents for their 32nd anniversary. They live in a condo, and the idea was for them to put it on their patio. It's worked great - the worms are thriving, and they report no mess and no smell after a week and a half of use.

Great investment!

I used a basic tote last time I raised worms. This setup works so much better! Love it, and it harbors a lot of questions from guests as it sits in the corner of my kitchen. They're always incredulous that it DOESNT STINK. #hotfrog
