Vermicompost Answers Portland Casting CallBack
Portland, Oregon has a thriving marijuana culture. On November 4, 2014, Oregon voters passed Measure 91—a piece of legislation legalizing recreational use of marijuana by adults over the age of 21, as of July 1, 2015. Portland’s agriculture will be an increasingly indoor activity, where more control over the plants’ food environments allows more control over the crop’s quality come harvest.
Ambient temperature and lights are easy enough to control. The difficulty lies in carefully calculating and monitoring the plants’ nutrients and soil pH. Worms, enter from stage-right. Worm castings are the best organic marijuana fertilizer known to mankind. They’re rich in nutrients, and won’t wash out of the soil when you water the plant.

Vermicompost also increases the plants’ production of chitinases, preventing predatory behavior from bugs by destroying their exoskeletons, which are primarily made of chitin. Worm poop is green, natural fertilizer for your cannabis garden. It cuts the need for harsh chemicals you’d otherwise use to keep your harvest bug-free, and puts the saved money back into your pocket to invest in more equipment and vermicompost later. Hooray for sh*tty soil!
