Worms in soil from castings?

I am in mid-week #8 and just flushed my 3 plants. While dumping the run-off, I noticed what looked like 2 dead small worms (could have sworn 1 moved). I have been using worm castings as a top dressing and wondering if there could be eggs that developed into worms within my soil. I purchased the castings. Has this ever happened to anyone? Woot woot if they are in there, eh?

Im researching worm composting now in prep for spring grow. The marketing info says there will be eggs and babies in the the mix when it comes. I dont know how they could remove them from the castings so Im not surprised you hatched a couple. I think its good they are in with the plant.

I rely a lot on @Blew Hiller for worm info so perhaps he'll chime in.

What nutrient line are you running? If you're flushing and I assume running synthetics then it's not from the EWC. I don't think so anyway.

I'm a first time grower and yes, I used Advanced Nutrients PH Perfect 3 part nutes (hind sight and all that...) and also incorporated the castings. It's week 8 of flowering so I'm flushing with plain filtered water and a touch of molasses. Holy crapiola the Internet is full of so much info, some contradicting others, makes my head hurt. Molasses for sweetness. This is an experimental crop and yes I'm keeping a journal.

Interesting. Id assume being nitrogen rich that you'd have put the castings down kinda early. And, Advanced is a synthetic so it beats me. Not saying it's not possible it just seems weird. But, that's not unusual to hear something weird. Enjoy the harvest! Thanks for the feedback!
