Just about every type of plant requires a lot of nutrients to grow strong and healthy. The best way to get these nutrients within your plants is to supplement soil with nutrient-rich compounds. Worm casting compost (also known as vermicast) is manure made from worm waste. Worms will eat through compost and the waste they produce has a plethora of benefits for growing plants.

Worm castings are easy to use as well since you can place them in any part of the soil. While some fertilizers can only be used in certain types of soils, worm casting compost can be used at any point within the plant's home. You can use it in the topsoil, in the soil that will go around the roots, and even deeper to where the roots will one day reach.
