I'm gonna say that if you made it a little thicker like say 3/8", it would probably be good for at least 3 months. No need to cool it at an angle, the reason that is done for slants is to provide a larger growing surface. I have cannot say exactly how I i have kept and successful transferred from a plate but it was older than 3 months for sure.

glad people are getting on board :thumbup: agar is too good to let excuses like "its hard " or "I don't want to have to order stuff online" to prevent people from trying this exciting aspect of the hobby.



Agar is eazy with the no pour method.  The most important thing to stress is that there is most likely something in your house right now that can be part of an agar mix.  It has been pointed out time and time again, no pour is for the study by an individual who does not want to pour or order real plates (Cost/paranoia/both?). 


I have tried both the pp5 and the glass 1/2 pint jars back and forth, and prefer the glass jars.  I have been getting no condensation at all, and I can do 12 with just a bit over 250ml media.  I tried the quarter pint small mouth rounds.  What a pain in the ass....all of mine are "quilted" on the outside so I have zero chance of seeing anything from the side.  They are too small on the bottom, and require more monitoring or else will cover the plate pretty quick.  1/2 pint plastic lids are my sweet spot....again, just my opinion.

Plastic vs glass vs size is preferential.  The cat is still skinned. 

This is a great place to start when people ask "What is an eazy method to agar?"

I think that the agave is similar to honey.  It is more than a simple sugar.  I have not tried agave + agar without potato, but I think it would work great in the correct formulation.

That's all I was hoping to do. Show how easy it can be, and if some people prefer to do 1/2 pint jars after a few kicks at the can that's cool. The point is giving it a try and seeing how easy it really is.

So I was at Walmart today, the 2nd one I've tried and it appears they no longer carry my beloved little square flat Ball jars :sad:

So I was like alright, what would Pasty do?

Bam! :lol:



I couldn't remember what kind of tupperware it was you used, but it looks like I ended up getting the exact same ones.  I didn't have any micropore tape so I siliconed in some tyvek.  We'll see if it worked!

I've never seen Ziplocs for less than $2.25 on sale for 3 pints.
Other brands yeah, but they're still not even worth it

the shop n bag 2 blocks from me in the city of brotherly love has the them both, twist and pop tops.  i think they (shop n bag) r franchised though, so it may be up to the owner of the store what to carry.

pasty i blame u for having too many plates to work with.



gonna have to dump some.  no room in fridge and all jars are in use, so i can't noc up more grain yet.  many of these have grown to the edge, which i haven't had a problem with yet taking wedges up against the walls, but with regular petri i almost always get a bacteria contam if i take a wedge from the edge.  haha sounds like a good thread name "Wedge from the Edge"
what is ur opinion on taking a wedge from the edge of these PP5's vs a regular petri?  am i just lucky or are the higher walls offering a better barrier?
