The photo shows now. I ignore stuff like that. I don't remove roots unless they fall off spontaneously.

I am surprised you say the coconut fiber doesn't retain water. It's considered very water-retentive. If you soak the pot, how many days until a wood stick inserted deeply into the medium for 10...

Take it out NOW to look at the roots. Chop out anything with any spots. First I think you should cut off all the spikes. You don't want to stress it.
