Hello everyone, Is this contamination (blackish coloration) I see on the surface? If so, how likely will my other mini tubs get contaminated if I opened the contaminated one near by the other ones, which were closed? Thanks!

Hi Riconcarde,

 

That is what it looks like when spores are being deposited from open caps.  They're so tiny and light that they are carried by the slightest air movement, so you may find that coloration in unexpected places.  Often, you'll see spores on top of the cap that dropped them.
