Substitute for potatoes in Potato Dextrose Agar (PDA)?
    #25386190 - 08/13/18 07:19 PM (2 years, 8 months ago)

Hi all, lazy and don't want to go get potatoes at the market.

Could I use any of the following:

Carrots
Purple potatoes
Oatmeal
Nutritional Yeast

Carrots to me feel like they could work because of the starch content, but the purple potatoes are sweet, and maybe, dare I say, too sweet?  Maybe with the purple potatoes i wouldn't need to use dextrose?

What would you fine folk do?  I would experiment, but I'm using them to start fresh with spores so I don't know if i want to risk it, since they might take a while to germinate.

I'd use purple potatoes + dextrose

Alright, i'll get on the purple potatoes mission.  Would you use the same amount as the PDA ratios? 200g per liter?

You could try some carrot mixed with it too. I know carrot agar is good for growing some fungi and potato carrot agar is a thing, although I've never tried either myself.
