Please help a child's science project - Avoiding MOLD? More airflow?
    #3914300 - 03/14/05 01:50 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Ok, say you wanted to grow bacteria, but you get mold invading it. How can we grow bacteria and avoid growing mold?

Poke air holes?

This is for educational purposes. My friend called me up and asked me because his niece is doing a science experiment for her class. She wants to show how much bacteria we have on our hands before and after we wash, as well as other samples. She basically just wants to let the natural bacteria grow in seperate containers to point out just how much more bacteria is on your hands when you don't wash them. Cute, isn't it? She's like a little scientist. I love it and want to help them out. Can you guys help me do that?

You should follow the sterile techniques found in most grow logs. Get a HEPA filter from walmart for $40 and a crapload of lysol. I don't suppose your neice would want to construct her own glovebox though... LOL!

this question could probably be answered better in either the Cultivation or Advanced Cultivation forums. People there can tell you all about doing cultures with agar.

Good luck to your neice! Brilliant minds are best formed at a young age!

Add an anti-fungal to the food that the bacteria is eating.

Thanks guys. I told my buddy it was too much for me, so I sent him a link to this site and told him to look into the "cultivation" part.

I knew that growing shrooms wouldn't be too different from this.
