Where to buy a few things?
    #3376992 - 11/18/04 12:37 AM (12 years, 19 days ago)

After shopping around all day today (and I suck at shopping) I couldn't find any agar (want to inoculate Petri dishes) or crushed oyster shells (50/50+ casing). I'm thinking about trying an asian food market tomorrow for the agar but I really doubt they'll know what I'm talking about if I ask for "agar" :P Where should I look for it?

As for the crushed oyster shells... I asked around in Wally's world and a dedicated pet store, they had no idea what I was on about. Where should I specifically look for this?

Come to think of it, should I even bother - is 50/50+ worth it? The tek doc seems to give it a pretty glowing review, but you'd expect it to :P

50/50+ rocks! I ordered oyster shells online from mycosupply.com. I have no idea where you could purchase them locally. I also ordered agar from mycosupply as well as petri dishes. They are really reasonable prices, fast shipping with tracking.

You can get agar at most health food stores.
If you really have your heart set on the 50/50+, find a farm supply or co-op that sells chicken feed. They should also have crushed oyster shell.

I found crushed oyster shells at Southern States, a farm/feed store. It is a chain but i don't know how far they're spread out. I've also got verm., peat, rye grass seed, a pH meter, and other things there. 50/50 is good shit. For anything i can't get locally, like derx said, mycosupply always gets my business.

Another good place to get crushed oyster shells is from http://www.groworganic.com/a/item_F018_OystershellLime7LbBox.html

7lbs for 6$, not bad.

Or you can get 50lbs for 6$. Shipping will be considerably more, though.
