To me the pic simply looks like a bare root VFT, (out of focus and on its side),
coming out of cold storage.
In all fairness, without seeing the "bulb-let"/roots, it is really hard to judge,
Don't you think?
As far as worms in a Nep are concerned, if grown outdoors, anything will get worms/pillbugs and such, coming up thru the pot.
While not horrible, I certainly agree that it is DEFINITELY not something a vendor should be sending to a customer. (Unless it was bought in person, and was sitting directly on the ground, in which case it is to be expected as a possibility.)
But sending out to a customer...Not at all!
Shows blatant carelessness and especially greed!
A lot of that is making its appearance lately, if you are aware enough to see it.
Does seem that some of it has gotten very obvious however.
