I pulled my agar plates out of the fridge and quite a bit of water had accumulated in them somehow.  They weren't that wet when I put them in there.  They were in sandwich bags, maybe that had something to do with it?


For now I turned them upside down so the myc isn't submerged.  Any ideas?

Could it be the transition of temperature that would create the condensation? I'm just getting started on my agar game and it's just turned out a tad runny/damp after it has cooled.

As the temp warmed up it'll cause condensation. If they weren't that wet does it pull it right from the agar. I've noticed lots of different moisture in mine. Even from day to day as the house changes temp by 10-15 deg.
