SKU: N/A Category:


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

1) 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.

2) When it’s time to expand your living composter 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.

3) 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.

4) The double walled lid and base provide excellent insulation against temperature swings helping to maintain an ideal environment. Happy worms are productive worms.

5) The spigot on the bottom allows you to collect the worm tea easily with no mess!

In addition to our updated features the HOT FROG Living Composter also has all the features traditionally found in worm composters. 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 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

Live worms

Received my hot frog and worms, all healthy. As expected getting tea all is good, thanks Uncle Jim.

so easy

I was worried about the workload involved with worm composting, but so far it couldn't be easier. It's been less than a month and the worms seem happy. They are slow to eat what I've put inside, but that's normal from what I've been reading. There's no smell from the compost bin and really no maintenance until I'm ready to harvest. I can't wait to get to the point where I can expand my bin.

Love it!

I purchased the Composter to use when I go into the schools to demonstrate and educate children about vermicomposting. I use a small aquarium to demonstrate the steps of setting one up, then use the Composter to allow the children to set one up and to demonstrate how to harvest. The Composter is a hit with the children and the teachers!


Great composter system

Only complaint is that I had to move it outside because I started by adding my own worms meaning there was some left over old compost with them and this caused tons of bugs a flies. But it is thriving outside, the worms just stay in the bottom section when it is hot out. Great costumer service.
