My wife and I have a worm compost pile in our workshop that processes a few pounds of food waste a week. Up until now, it has been used in outdoor gardens.
Now I am starting some indoor plant gardens and would like to use the nutrients to benefit them.
The problem is that the worm compost pile has various mites that don’t disturb things outdoors and are natural, but I don’t want those in my indoor gardening setup.
From what I’ve read, I can make compost tea, then throw out / recycle the compost remains and add that to my indoor gardening.
The other option that I’ve come up with is to do some sort of sterilization (baking) that I’ve seen some gardeners do when bringing outside soil indoors. Is that a dumb idea and would it remove all the nutrients that the worms worked to produce?
If I’m thinking about this all wrong, happy to hear any feedback and appreciate the help.
