This is a clone jar, dipped a piece of inner stem in h2o2 then stabbed it into the agar. This little black contam started growing, then a couple days later it started growing a tiny droplet on it, was pale yellow almost clear. now the black spot is bigger and the droplet is larger and darker in color.

Just thot it was a cool pic. :headbang:

Any chance of a better pic?

I'm gonna do some research - it seems somewhere in the back of my head is a mental note about slime molds producing droplet things like that. Slime molds are COOL things...fungi that actually move from place to place...

Regardless, as contams go, it is sure cooler looking than trich!

Here are some better pics. I already made a successful clean transfer of this clone so I just scooped it out of the jar with a spoon to get some better shots of this contamination.

Well, it didn't look at all like the slime mold I thought I was remembering.

Congrats on doing a clean transfer from it, regardless! Agar work is useful stuff to know how to do...
