Does Subpod need any maintenance?

‚ÄčWhen you add your food scraps to Subpod you will need to mix them through using an aerator.  This takes a few minutes per week.  Using the aerator helps to mix the food through the Subpod so that the worms and microbes can break them down more easily, as well as oxygenating the Subpod.  Oxygenating the Subpod means an aerobic environment, and reduction in smells.

The airflow panels need to be kept clear from plant growth growing up against the Subpod.  You will need to pull away plants occasionally.

If the soil surrounding the Subpod settles and starts to reveal the Subpod worm holes exposed to the air (beneath the airflow panels), more soil needs to be added to cover the holes.  

Otherwise, just keep feeding your worms and keeping the blanket covering them moist when you are adding more food.
