Microworm question - green stuff?

A microworm culture I ordered just arrived, without instructions.

I found some instructions online, but they don't answer one thing - the package arrived with a tub of soupy oatmeal (the culture, I assume) and it also came with a plastic bag of green bits.

No idea what this green stuff is? Any advice welcome, thanks.

No idea what it could be either. Are you able to ask the seller? Most will include instrutions with their cultures.
All you need is media (oatmeal) and yeast for your culture.

I just cook really thick oatmeal, let it cool to room temp. and add yeast to feed the microworms, then add the microworms. Works for me.
