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

Working great!

This item is awesome. Very easy to use and put together plus it doesn’t smell.

I'm a happy camper

My worms had traveled well, and bounced back quickly after following the instructions. The only thing I would change, is the instructions. While pretty clear, I would have benefited from more detailed advice. I actually set it up wrong at first (put the food into tier 2 instead of in the soil tier with the worms at the bottom...) watched a few Youtube videos and then understood how I was supposed to fill it. Also am still not sure how MUCH to give them and how to see if they're unhappy / happy, so I would have happily paid a few bucks extra to get a book about it, or training video course :D No escaped worms, and they're munching away. They seem happy. It's still in my kitchen, it does not smell at all.

Love it!

I love this composter. Unfortunately, I ordered the wrong product initially - the customer service was wonderful with helping me return and purchase what I intended.

Hot Frog Living Composter

My worms seem to be enjoying their new digs and so far so good. No smell which is critical since I live in the South and it's way too hot to keep them outdoors. I also appreciate the free shipping, easy set up and online help offered on the site. I have no idea what I'm doing so it helps to be able to look up other people's experience.

Love it!

Great item! Worms are thriving! Easy to set-up and maintain.
