Which one of Sigma's agars do you use?
Did you try this also with petri-dish cultures? I'm asking because I find
petri dishes much more convenient and fast to handle however I did not
dare to sow seeds into dishes because dessication is much quicker
normally than in glass vials closed with foil and Parafilm.
