The accumulation of solid waste sludge from Textile dye sludge causes a great problem in its safe disposal. Perionyx excavatus were cultured under laboratory condition with 60-80%moisture in mud pot container following with the mixing ratio of TMS (Textile Mill Sludge) + SD(Sawdust) designated as X (1:1) respectively add inoculums (EM) Effective microorganisms and (CD) Cow dung were also used in the above ratio. Once in 15days up to 90days number of hatchling, worm growth rate and the weight of earthworms were determined and analysed statistically. On the basic of the efficiency of four treatments with control condition, (EM) separately, (CD) separately and (EM+SD) combined together were analysed to support the reproduction and growth of Perionyx excavatus has been done. The growth rate, weight gain, and hatchling production observed in the mixed ratio of TMS+SD (1:1) ratio with the above treatments were determined and better combination of mixed ratio with appropriated inoculums was determined. The mixed of TMS+SD+(EM+CD) gave high growth rate, weight gain and hatchling production of selected vermiculture Perionyx excavatus. Hence TMS in combination SD in (1:1ratio) can be used for vermiculture.
