This site is telling me that Agar does not contain any nutrients for growth, and that all it really does is provide something for the organism to grow on, which would mean that myc grows in just tap water.. Can someone explain this?


"The bacteria do not use the agar for growth, in fact the agar merely provides a semi-solid surface to grow the bacteria on."

It also says to add 2 boullin cubes to the solution to give the organism nutrients. Worth a try huh?

Also, what is the difference between the two products they are selling?

The agar acts as an ingredient that hardens the solution to a gel-like consistency. Could you cut a wedge out of a liquid? Agar itself is not what's used to grow myc with, it's the ingredients mixed in with it. That's why you don't see any agar recipes on here that just have agar listed as an ingredient.

Oh ok, I've never looked at any of the recipes here, I just always thought it was used like Karo.
