i've been neglecting a morel culture for sometime now because it failed to form any micro-sclerotia on standard pdya 300g potato water 10g dex. 3g nutritional yeast 20 gram co-op agar. i didn't have any petri's at the time so baby food jars were used, w/lids . the cultures stain the agar dark orange to black, take on the appearance of fox squirrel fur upon consolidation of agar, and reek of fresh morels the first time a hot scalpel is inserted(this led me to promptly contaminate nearly every culture with whatever bacteria lives in my nose), so i'm sure its the right stuff. recently i bartered some morels for some petri's but when i made a double batch of pdya i found i had only 2-3 grams of yeast, which i divided between 2 one liter batches. a week later in the petris with low yeast content, i'm seeing what appears to be micro-sclerotia everywhere!!!! i'm wondering if anyone else has seen micro-sclertioa formation suppressed by either lack of air exchange or perhaps agar being rich in yeast or perhaps just slightly nutrient rich in general( i may have added a bit of wheat flour) regardless, it's onto grain now!
