Agar question..
    #2659413 - 05/10/04 02:11 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Does it usually take a while before growth starts on agar? I put a few colonised grains of millet on PDA + peroxide about 4 or 5 days ago and there's still no growth out onto the agar.. the grains are all fluffed up with growth but that's it. I was expecting it to start as fast as if the grain had been used in grain2grain jars..

I would have thought you would be seeing growth on the plate by now.

Are they in a incubator? and how much h2o2 did you use? Also too rich a medium can slow growth.

Give it a few more days for the growth to get used to the peroxide.

There could well have been a little too much peroxide.. as I understand it store bought stuff can vary in strength from what it says on the bottle.
Looks like a bit of growth is happening on one of the plates now.. am I right in thinking when I use the colonised plate to start more off with it should grow better due to already being used to the peroxide?
