Petri dishes
    #4135547 - 05/05/05 01:14 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Ok so I have an order of petri dishes and some agar on the way. I wanted to know if I can place spores on the agar via syringe (since I don't have any prints to scrape off) or is water a bad idea?

Also, what kind of agar would you suggest for p.cubes?

yeah u can just put a drop in the dish then swirl it around with the lid closed to spread out the drop across a larger area to hopefully spread out the spores.

for types of agar check out http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23544
and take your pic.

I would recommend using one drop of spore solution and working very hard to keep it undisturbed right in the center of the dish. You want your spores germinating in close proximity to each other so proper clamp connections can be made, thus producing dikaryotic mycelium. I recommend MEA.
