agar decomposing
    #3579007 - 01/04/05 12:46 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

after about 1.5 weeks some of my agar plates start to pull away from the sides of the jar and kinda shrivel up but its not drying up because water starts to build up in the bottom of the jars, yes jars i use 1/4 pint jars. What could be causing this?

not really, my time frame is wrong their about 5 days old, it is close to a pure strain but the growth doesn't even reach the spot were the agar is decomposing. could it be that the agar is to old?

Sounds like it's drying up. I've had baby food jars of agar (slants) that lasted years and a couple that didn't get sealed up tight and they shriveled up.

but their is a pool of water almost above the top of the agar, if it could float it would be.

Its not going to absorb any water when its solidified. Agar is only soluble in hot water.

Where do you think all that water came from? It left the agar man..

I know what strikes me as odd about this. It is totally unnatural. The whole idea is just totally backwards.

So are historians going to look back at 'The Great Cake Eaters'? Damn. That was a backwards step in the evolutionary process. We left Shroomheads in the dust. Welcome to the new age of Vermheads.
