Baby Red Worm

4 Dec

In harvesting some red worm castings for my lemon trees and herbs I came across this new born red worm.  This little fella will grow rapidly in the next week and should reach sexual maturity in 60-90 days.  At this point, a healthy red wiggler can produce an egg every 7 days for the remainder of their life.  Red worms have been known to live for 15 years.
