The general rule of thumb is worms can eat half their weight in food per day! This means that if you start with one half kg (or about 800-1000 worms), they can eat a quarter kg of food per day. As your worm population grows, they will be able to process more food at a faster rate. Use the rule that when you see the worms are actively engaged in eating the food you most recently added in the top feeding tray you should add more food.
