I believe that at this point I have ideal moisture level, now just to keep it stable long enough to confirm the impact of substrate moisture on cultures and ratio of Grindal and "microworms" (whatever they are).
If the size of worms really depends on the substrate dampness, I will keep a box or two too wet to have "microworms" and the rest of them favoring full sized Grindal worms.
Interesting animals, these worms..
I just wish I had a microscope.
