More Information

  • No.1 Vermicompost: Worm castings secreted by earthworms on a diet of pre-composted local food scraps previously destined for landfill.
  • Coconut Coir: A pH-balanced medium that is a natural by-product of the coconut industry. We never use peat moss because we believe that peat fields, Mother Earth’s biggest carbon sequestering ecosystem, should be left alone to retain CO2 deposits.
  • Aggregate: Rocky calcined clay that naturally improves drainage.
  • Pine Bark Fines: Sourced from sustainable pine tree farms in the USA.

  • Select the correct-sized pot for your plant and ensure that it has drainage holes at the bottom with a receiving tray to retain excess water.
  • Fill soil to 1⁄3 of pot with No. 3 soil. Moisten soil once in the pot.
  • Remove plant from previous container and massage the root ball to loosen.
  • Place plant in center of pot.
  • Fill in pot with additional No.3 soil to 1 inch below the rim.
  • Carefully pat down the soil around plant’s crown to anchor it.
  • Water plant 1 week after repotting.

Pluvr’s vermicompost is made by its 320,000 earthworm employees (specifically the Eisenia Fetida, aka the red wiggler). These organics are blended with local leaves to make the perfect carbon to nitrogen compost recipe. The leaves and food are fed to an in-vessel composter where the thermophilic (‘hot’) compost process takes place, killing all pathogens and weed seeds to meet USDA NOP regulations on pathogen reduction.

Compost material from the in-vessel composter, once at ambient temperature, is then fed to our earthworms who gobble it up in continuous flowthrough reactors. The worms then ‘secrete’ worm castings, which are harvested along with a small percent of the bedding that isn’t eaten to form our premium vermicompost.

Pluvr carefully partners with local restauranters to source our compost inputs - always pure and uncontaminated food scraps and coffee grounds.
