Worm Juice

My apologies for taking so long to write to you all again. In this southern hemisphere garden I've been potting out autumn seeds the last few months, ordering more Crinum seeds and some hippys as well, and repotting crinum in preparation for their winter and spring growth.
Recently whilst on a training course a thoughtful person decided I needed another pet. I should say pets because he actually gave me, quite to my surprise a bag of red worms. The kids naturally are delighted. Now I've got the worm farm going, but I've also been given 6 litres (about 2 gallons I think) of worm juice which I want to try out.
Can anyone please tell me if they've used worm juice as a liquid fertizer on Amaryllidaceae (In particular Crinum, Brunsvigia and Amaryllis) or Hippeastrum;
1.  what success they had (eg. noticable growth or detrimental)
2.  how they applied it (eg. 20 to 1 mix to the leaves?) and 
3.  when (how often) they applied it. 
4.  To what kinds of geophytes was it applied.
And of course if anyone has used it on other plants it would also be interesting to hear about those. 
Whilst I also have Habranthus, Zephranthes, Hymenocallis, Gladiolus, Moraea, Rhodophiala, Haemanthus and Scadoxus - I haven't planned to give these a liquid feed with worm juice.
