Let me ask it this way. Their is a chem shop around the town I live in that sales petri dishes. They have a sheep blood media in them. Is the media alright for myc. to be grown on? I have not found anything by searching.

i am no agar expert by any means, but put it this way - those are sold specifically for cultivating bacteria on. if you try to grow mycelium on them, you're stacking the dice in the contams' favour.

what you want to use the agar plates for? maybe you can get round it by using liquid myc teks instead, like honey, karo or dextrose. if there is an asian supermarket in your area, you can probably get agar in there and use a shallow jar as a petri dish. the only other ingredients are sugar and a potato. a flowhood is recommended for agar work, if you can get one.

good luck  :thumbup:
