Coud be ok. Check your PH level. The verm will be ok but the potting soil may be off a bit. Shoot for a Ph of 7.

I dont get what people mean when they say check your Ph levals. I think its percent hydrogen(SP?). How do i check it.. I have Ph paper but i dont think thats how its done.

u can buy ph metters for soil in any gardening shop.. I have seen them from 10-20 bucks depending on manufacture.. U cant use the paper ph tester acuratly with soil because thats to test the ph in water of hydroponic set-ups..

Peace!

If you have pins already then dont do anything. If you have problems it's just one thing to check. I use an aquatic PH test kit and collect a sample of whatever I want to test, soak it in distilled water for a while and then add the test drops. The kit was $4 for 250 tests. It may not be the most accurate, I don't know, but it's cheap and that's what I'm about right now:)
