heh anyway, As RR has said, it is normal for a casing to pull away from the sides a little bit as the mycelium consumes it. It can also be a moisture issue.
The thing with a verm casing layer, is that it is sometimes hard to tell when it doesn't have enough moisture. With a peat and or coir casing layer, you can tell because of the color change of the casing layer.
What you can do, is to add more moist casing material to the sides of the container where your casing has pulled away. This will also help to prevent side pinning, which can be a pain come harvest time.
Side pinning does happen from time to time IMO no matter what, but that will help to greatly reduce it.
GL TO YA!

So you are probably right in assuming that it isn't mold, but then what the hell is it??
Any way that you could get a picture for us?

so foaf picked all the ones with the weird spots and increased humidity and BAM the rest seem to be growing much happier:eusa_droo first pic is the little ones from the first casing and rest are the other casing which had a lot less pins originally but a couple fatties which are still not mature, and now is pinning like crazy while the fatties are still growing.the camera didnt get to the house till after the first one was picked too bad...:( wish i had pics. guess the title of this thread might need to get changed...damn;)
