I am floored. I believed that with the worm casting 'mulch' that they'd have rotted within a day or two.

Cheers to you,

The castings produced by worms are the purest and most perfect form of plant food. In addition to containing unusually high populations of beneficial microorganisms crucial to healthy root systems, castings also naturally aerate the soil, help retain high moisture levels, and release nutrients slowly over time to meet your plant’s needs.

Worm castings have additional advantages over other soils, including traditional composts. When ordinary compost is placed on the ground to enrich plants, the available nutrients are quickly leached into the soil as soon as rainfall or sprinkler irrigation systems are turned on. Vermicompost provides a time-released benefit, slowly nurturing the plants over a greater length of time. Worm castings contain plant nutrients encased in mucus membranes secreted by the earthworms. Castings dissolve slowly rather than allowing immediate nutrient leaching. The product has excellent soil structure, porosity, aeration, and water retention capabilities. It can insulate plant roots from extreme temperatures, reduce erosion and help with the control weeds.

I had a small bag of earthworm castings, to try to get a Thai Strap Fern to 'have babies', but no go. The castings globbed together solidly, like fudge. Hum.
