3.5 Gallon Grow Green Vermicompost Bucket


Item Details:

Purchase a pre-filled bucket of compost from the MSU Surplus Store. When empty, bring the bucket back and refill it for only $10! Refills are available for this bucket only and only during in-store shopping hours.

Grow Green Vermicompost comes from pre-consumer food scraps (rinds, peelings, seeds, etc.) and coffee grounds from MSU dining facilities. It is mixed with leaves and other locally sourced dry organic material and briefly hot composted before being processed by red wiggler worms. The end result is a well-aged and stable soil amendment for plant growth.

Using compost regularly can improve the soil's ability to retain moisture. Vermicompost is a highly regarded soil amendment for its unique soil profile once the vermicomposting process is complete. It has a stable NPK ratio and thriving population of beneficial microbes that help defend the plant from pests and environmental factors during the growing season.

How to use Grow Green:

  • Top Dressing Plants: Sprinkle a small amount on the soil of your beds prior to watering (1/4 “ on surface).  Repeat regularly for best results.
  • Container Plant Growing Media: Mix into your current growing media or seed starting media at a 10 to 20% by volume ratio
  • Garden Beds: When transplanting annuals or perennials, mix in the planting hole a half cup for small plants or a full cup for larger plants.

Vermicompost may dry out after being packaged and may cause settling. This does not affect the nutrient composition.
