I'll answer here.
Glad to hear you finished the hood!
Was definately worth the two days of work to be able to work with more confidence and comfort.
Peroxide agar would maybe work on living tissue, those here didn't germ yet and peroxide would kill everything.
The agar incubator is getting full with all the transfers from the frozen cultures and the spore plates + edible plates, I decided to just buy some antibiotic agar powder and cook a small batch to put those spores on.
Not sure where the bacteria came from, only those three plates are dirty, they were the last ones of that 18 plate load from that day, I don't remember anymore in which order they've been inoculated but the Cinctulus print wasn't one of the old prints and has the same contam on the plate.
The bacteria started growing from the spore center and did spread through the excess water so it definately came from the spore area, as if the scalpel was dirty and I brought it in with that.
Honestly though I feel comfortable doing agar and wipe and flame between and usually don't have any issues with dirty plates.
Gonna get the agar in a couple days and start over.
Don't expect to see any germination on those bacterial plates but gonna keep them on the side for now, just in case.
Wanted to ask that earlier, what is H3 and HillBilly ?
Never heard of those
