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

Initial impressions are good

So far this composter works well, and the worms have settled in fine. My only comment is that the screw heads for the legs could be larger or a washer should be included to reduce stress on the plastic. Time will tell how well it holds up, and how well it houses the worms. I'm excited to see how well the vermipost process works!

Good so far

I have only had this product about a week. Worms arrived alive. They are just now starting to act “normal”. A few escaped in the beginning, I think because it was too wet. Now I have to deal with fruit flies because I did not cover the food enough. Eventually it will all be good... just a little work to get started. Would recommebd- beautiful addition to my house :).

Works great so far, but questions about the "worm tea" advertised as a benefit of this

Worms seem happy, composter looks great, and so far no smell or escaped worms. We were also really impressed that all our worms arrived looking healthy and happy. The only concern we have is that the "worm tea" drainage that was advertised as fertilizer, which I was excited about because I have lots plants. But then we were were researching composter best practices, it seems that this is actually leachate and not healthy for putting on edible plants--according to the Uncle Jim's website!). So which is it? This material says it's "worm tea" ( "The spigot on the bottom allows you to collect the worm tea easily with no mess!" ) and this says it's "worm leachate" ( "First off, properly speaking, the liquid that drains from the spigot is not worm tea, although some people do call it that. The liquid that drains from the bottom of a worm bin is more accurately called worm leachate or worm seepage." and "Since worm seepage only happens when your worm bin is too wet, and overly wet conditions lead to the production of bad bacteria, there is a good chance that the draining liquid will not benefit your plants.") I'm happy with the composter, but annoyed with what feels like false advertising.

Fabulous Farm

My composter arrived with the worms all in good order. The red wigglers were very wiggly! I set up the composter very quickly and have it in my kitchen to allow the worms to adjust. I'm actually bringing it to our mountain house where a wild bear travels through. I need an indoor composter so that he doesn't hang around too much. So, I'm very excited not to be throwing scraps out!!
