Hi!
Here I bring a ques­tion (the search couldn’t help me):
I am set­ting up three new boxes for grindal worms. I have bought indoor seramis (the out­door vari­a­tion con­tains a lot of fer­tiliser).
It is writ­ten on the pack­ag­ing, that indoor seramis con­taines clay and cal­ium.…
I have searched and found noth­ing about that, even not in the arti­cles of Mar­tin Hall­mann.
The only thing rec­om­mended is, to wash seramis with hot water, go wash out the fines red par­ti­cles.…

Do you all do it that way? Or is that cal­ium dan­ger­ous for the worms/​the fish?

with best regards,
Dorothee

Hello Dorothee,
unlikely, even if there is some­thing in it.
I reg­u­larly use fer­til­izer with iron, cal­ium etc.
Of course in small quan­ti­ties. So far, noth­ing neg­a­tive noticed.

O.k. Cal­ium also seems to me not to be too dan­ger­ous… and I washed the seramis very clean.…
Any other ideas here? Per­haps I am again the only one who wor­ries about this? ;-)

with best regards,
Dorothee

Dorothee — Seramis appears to be a plant grow­ing mate­r­ial? I have checked and it is not avail­able in the USA. Can you describe how it is pre­pared to grow grindal worms?

Hi Bill!
Seramis is made in Ger­many from 100% burned red clay. They have told me that the indoor stuff would not con­tain any addi­tional fer­til­izer. Cal­ium would be con­tained nat­u­rally in clay .… Nor­maly you use that stuff instead of soil for plants. A kind a f hydro cul­ti­va­tion.….
If you have the pos­si­bil­ity to get clay and a place where they burn it for you , you could use such kitchen tools to press noo­dles through or cooked pota­toes to get clay worms and cut the clay worms after­wards in small pieces. Than you have o burn the pieces at about 950 degrees Celsius.

with best regards,
Dorothee
