I have white worm cultures and grindle worm cultures. My question is how or what to feed the culture in its container.

My problem is fungus or mould growing on the bread and or dry cat food.

i have tried bread with yeast and kefir / yogurt as per this video but have the same problem with dry cat food that is soaked in water. After a week or so white hair fungus grows with a green dry fungus or mould underneath.
Am I keeping it to wet? / to dry?
I will listen to any advice, particularly from anyone running a culture. thanks in advance.

That is way too much food for them. I keep my cultures in cool whip containers and they get one or two soaked algae wafers/dog food a day. You only want a small amount of food to prevent the mould. Remove uneaten food before placing the new food.

Perhaps the photo is a bad choice on my part?
i simply was trying to show the green mould.
Those 6 slices of bread are from all six containers.
A few worms were still on the bread so I figured I would transfer them to a new container of soil as I am trying to get as many cultures started as possible.

Cool whip? What is that ? Ice cream I guess?

Yes the bread is more than a week old.
Ok so I need to cut back on the food regardless. But seriously you suggest I need to remove and replace food every couple of days?
I will do that thanks for the suggestion.

Grindal worm cultures in white dishes, white worms in the red dish.
