Howdy folks,

While considering next year vacation, I thought about what will happen to my grindal worms cultures when there is no one to take care of them. Is there away to hit a "pause button?"
Is there a way to slow down the growth of the colonies and keep it alive for two weeks? Thank you kindly.

Hmm, good question. I don’t know. The population would die off for sure but you need to feed the remaining population and keep the soil moist. Maybe a layer of moist brown Paper. I’ve tried putting them in the fridge with whiteworms but they didn’t survive 55F.

I think we would need to split a colony into severals with fewer worms in each one, use damp papers and reduce the temperature. From mistergreen post 55F or lower is not good. What is the lowest temperature that they can survive?

Maybe across your split cultures, put them in a spectrum of temperatures in hopes that at least one of the temps works out well?
