A few chopped comfrey leaves will stimulate reproduction in a worm box. Don't know what nutrient is helpful, but they do seem to thrive. I have my comfrey planted inside a two foot circle of root barrier left over from containing a stand of bamboo. It hasn't spread--yet. Accidentally popped an extra tomato cage over it, too--looks great!

Thanks for the comments.
Mine's looking pretty at the moment too; it's been in bloom a week or two, and has plenty of leaves I could be using right now.
