First Time Agar Help
    #27051195 - 11/21/20 11:31 PM (5 days, 12 hours ago)

Hi all,
I have recently begun the journey of learning how to cultivate, and I was hoping I could get some help. I have a pretty decent looking plate of B+ that is ready to be cleaned up, and I was having some trouble finding where to transfer from. The spots in the dish are sediment spots. Thank you in advance!

All looks well. Question though - how did you inoc your plate? No matter what the method, it is always a good idea to stay away from the edges of the plate, because that is where microscopic contams get in. No matter if inocing a new plate, or taking wedges to transfer to a new plate -stay away from the edges of your plates. It is nice to see that you have wrapped your plates! But as a matter of establishing good technique, avoid the edges as much as possible. :mushroom2:.

Its not really clear enough to recommend an exact section, it looks like even growth to. Like he said above, your edges can be risky, id recommend transferring from the part close to center plate.

Thanks for the input! I inoculated with MSS, and I may have been a bit heavy handed with the plunger. This was one of four plates, two got contam. The other plate got cracked in the process of wrapping, but has the best growth for some reason. Thank you again!
