I prefer glass.

I like to pour after...when the agar is cooling down...to avoid condensation inside the petri dish.

Glass is great. Have also had luck with pre-sterilized plastic ones. But, over the long run, glass.

Pour then sterilize - if you don't have a G/B or F/H.
R/Ks way - if you do.

These ones are great because they are cheap, and divided(many ways) which can make doing isolations a breeze :stoned:

The plastic ones have the option for the amount of air that gets under the lid. I don't know if glass does. For myc work, I would use the ones without air gaps, but ya have to tell the dude thats what you want, the standard has little air gap tabs. Otherwise you always have to tape the edges. Next time, Im getting glass! Plastic melts too easily.
