This section is devoted to those non-scientists (or fledgling scientists) who are interested in simple methods for culturing Physarum. Some of the documentation included here is not easily referenced, having come from websites that are no longer available, or having been obtained via web-surfing (e.g. Google) that yielded material in one search but not another. Wherever possible I have included, in the document, the URLuniform resource locator – a human readable web address which is looked up by the →DNS and translated into an →IP Address from which it was obtained and/or an acknowledgment of the source. I apologize for any inadvertent infringement on copyright or "intellectual property" but ask forgiveness since the sole purpose of this section is to encourage the non-expert - especially young students - to give it a try and HAVE SOME FUN.
In this part I would like to show the process of a project from the beginning to the end.
Cover container bottom with piece of paper towel.
Additional cultures are easily made by transferring a plasmodial covered oat flake to another container. Producing several cultures is desirable to ensure that you don't loose an only culture due to a unforeseen failure of a plasmodium. Also, having more than one culture allows you to test the effects of different treatments on the slime mold (e.g. exposure to light, cold, different food sources, etc.).
Now you can see the photos of final project.
here are the references of a project this semester.
