Overview

The Grow Bag & Subpod Mini create a cost-efficient compost and garden system that can be easily rearranged or taken with you anywhere! Set the Grow Bag up on any surface like concrete, grass, gravel or woodchips! Add the Subpod Mini as a vermi-composting system that relies on worms to break down your food waste. Worms move through the perforations underground, aerating and carrying those nutrients into the surrounding soil, creating an optimal and fertile environment for plants to thrive.

The Grow Bag can be used on its own, purely as a garden bed.  They are a great light-weight, economical option for growing fruits and flowers! We suggest using multiple Grow Bags, one with a Subpod Mini and a few as just gardens beds. Then spreading the compost from your Subpod Mini across all your beds for a nutrient boost! The Grow Bag fabric is a polyester derived from PET pellets (made from recycled PETE water bottles).

Features & Benefits:

  • Light-weight 13 cubic foot garden bed 
  • Made from 100% recycled water bottles
  • Subpod Mini compatible
  • Concrete & gravel friendly
  • Handles make for easy moving

Please note the Subpod Mini does not include worms. You’ll need ​​500 – 1000 compost worms. Composting worms can be purchased here, or from a variety of local hardware stores or online sources.

Taking Care of Your Worms

Worms are low maintenance and will be happy as long as they are fed, have enough moisture, and are kept between 40° - 80° F. 

You don't need to feed your worms every day – just add scraps as you have them. Worms can survive up to 2 weeks without any new food. Worms reproduce inside the bin according to their space limitations. They will regulate their own population, so you never need to worry about overcrowding your Subpod Mini.

It is very important that the Subpod Mini is not overfed. Worms prefer to eat their food as it begins to decompose, but not if it has become slimy and smelly. You should not add more than 1" of new scraps at once time, and uneaten food should not exceed 2" deep.

What to Feed your Worms:

Most fruit and vegetable scraps, pulps from juicer
Cooked food
Tea leaves/bags and coffee grounds
Crushed/ground eggshells
Hair, vacuum cleaner dust, soiled paper, tissue, paper towels, shredded egg cartons
Shredded newspaper, cardboard, sawdust (untreated), wood ash
Lawn clippings in small quantities, weeds, clippings, prunings, dirt and leaves

What to Avoid or Limit:

Limit citrus and acidic fruit skin
Limit bread, pasta and other wheat based products
Avoid hard fruit pits
Limit spice foods, onions, garlic and leeks
Limit animal products such as meat, dairy, or fats
Avoid shiny paper
Do not feed rotten food to your worms

 Subpod can also process spicy herbs and peppers, dairy foods and oils, but it’s best to introduce these types of substances slowly, in small pieces, in small amounts at first, and only after your worms are fully established (around three months).
