I'm currently trying out whiteworms for the first time and they seem to be doing quite well. I haven't quite had enough reproduction to start harvesting, but they are definitely multiplying. I'd always been scared to try them because of the temperature things but I added them to my order since I was getting some other cultures and so far, so good. I was keeping them in my den, which I'm currently keeping in the 40-50 degree range to winterize some fish, and they weren't doing much. I've since brought them into the main part of the house and they are doing much much better. It is winter time, but my house temp is usually 66-68 at night and up to 74 in the daytime if we are feeling particularly chilly, and the worms are thriving. So they may not be as sensitive as you'd guess after reading about them. Perhaps generations of cultivation have made them a little more tolerant.
