Questions about agar
    #2915146 - 07/22/04 09:57 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I just picked up some agar and had a few questions.

I see ther various recipes for agar growth mediums (such as PDA)

Will just Dextrose and Agar work? (Seems it would sense the karo tek works.)

What does the Potato add to the recipe?

The potato is a complex carbohydrates. Dextrose is a simple carb. I'm not sure is just dextrose and agar would work, but i would not bet on it.

Potato/malt is a nutrient source as is dextrose mycelium really love potatoes and malt, mycelium will consume dextrose but at an undesirable rate IMO, Works excellent for the kero tek though!!! :wink:
