Culture Help??

I put this post last night in the betta emergency thread, but I didn't get any help, so I copied to here, hoping someone could share some advice.

Worm Starter Culture
I'm not sure where to put this post...but thought it a bit of an I received my starter cultures MW,BW & unfortunatly I have to fly out first thing Wed morning for a funeral, what can I do to keep these cultures safe until I get back on Sunday, or have I just lost my money?? These are new to me, they came with directions on how to grow the cultures, but with me having to leave...Im at a loss.

Anyone with some worm culture experience???? They are in individual ziplock bags, in a cereal/oatmeal base.

Im not sure about the other worms but I have MW. Really they will be fine, You keep them at room temperature and covered, they will take care of themselves, you really dont have to do anything with them but make a new culture every few weeks when the food gets old, so I think your fine.

All you have to do is set up more oatmeal/water mix with some yeast and put the whole packet in there. They'll multiply in no time! Make sure that the container you use has holes in it for oxygen and keep them in a dark place (they don't really like light).
