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.

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

Great!

Very cute. Working on not attracting so many fruit flies. I am sure that is something I am doing wrong, nothing to do with the composter. My worms are happy and healthy.

Excellent worm hotel

I love using this worm composter. Every time I tried diy worm composters outside I would eventually forget and neglect them in the off seasons. So excited to have the worms inside. Thank you.

Amazing- Grey Frog Composter with Extension Trays

I've had an outdoor cold compost pile, but this is my first time with indoor worm composting. It's only been a couple weeks since I put everything together so the residents are still getting comfortable in their new home, but all is well so far! No smell, and most of the time people just think its a subtle furniture piece. Looking forward to learning more and adding the extension trays over time. I will say the directions were a little confusing for me, so I read the website info again, and looked up videos how others are caring for their composters. Feeling more confident now, and love that I have another way to deal with the table scraps. Looking forward to the worm tea and castings! :)

Perfect for a Newbie!

Super easy to set up, attractive enough that I have it in my living room, and the worms are doing great! The legs are a little more obviously plastic than I expected, but it’s not a big deal. I would definitely recommend it.
