    Hey guys, hard to get a pic of this. Fully colonized tub, starting to pin. Noticed these spots, assume they can mean nothing good but wanted to check.

    Not in sub. Coir verm. But I might have used some in the grains as a test. I did on one batch and don't recall which.

    No spreading so far, if anything it looks like it dried out.

    No spread. Seemed to have totally dried out. Starting to pin

    spots basically dried up. Did not spread. Tub is pinning but sparsely. Which I am ok with, two others did a bit too well...
