liquid growth medium
    #3793467 - 02/17/05 03:18 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

i need help in determining if i have contamination in my liquid growth medium. I used the malt extract and injected spores. tthe liquid is staring to get cloudy but i have a white film on top of the liquid. is there any way to tell if this is the correct fungus before inoculation?

You will want a small area of white fuzzy mycelium you can see pictures all over this web site, it will start small and take over

i agree with above post...i inoculate whole grains in pints with thick homemade spore soln. from prints on prev. flushes, and i usually get germination within two days...since 2 days is fine for me, liquid myc is kinda useless as far as my stuff is concerned.
