New to Agar - Myc or Mold?
    #27290766 - 05/02/21 07:26 PM (4 days, 14 hours ago)

I'm trying agar for the very first time and streaked a couple plates with a spore swab.  While I messed something up and the agar didn't set firmly enough, this plate grew an interesting white blob at 12 o'clock - does that look like mycelium? (The grey stuff to the lower right is clearly mold.)  I've made some new plates (and the agar set correctly this time) and am going to try to do a transfer, but figured I'd ask to see whether I might be wasting my time. Thx!

Everything is mold on that plate. You said you used a swab but this type of contamination looks more like a spore syringe. The only sector I would transfer from (if at all) would be around 3 o-clock.

You will want to hone in your agar creation in order to eliminate the variables of the spores/new user error/unclean environment.

Thanks for the feedback.  I'll bin it. Perhaps the reason it looks like I used a spore syringe is that my agar was so runny?  I should have thrown it out and started over but I thought I might be able to get away with it.  Live and learn. I made another batch of agar today and it set properly this time.

Maybe tell something about your agar recipe.

I'd say it's a waste of time. Just make some more plates :smile:
