    Bread? It's also usually that green fuzzy mold on oranges you leave in the fridge too long.

    The problem with growing fungi is that you need to be extra careful to use sterile conditions, bacteria tend to grow faster and outcompete fungi on most growth media. Most standard agar plates, you can look up the ingredients easily on the internet, will work fine for growing fungi. They're a finicky bunch though, and some species can be hard to grow. Some agar are better for promoting sporulation and the like, but my experience with fungi isn't all that extensive.

    PENICILLIN G PROCAINE (Wycillin®) is a long acting penicillin antibiotic. Penicillin G Procaine kills certain bacteria that cause infection, or stops their growth.They need to know if you have any of these conditions:
    • asthma
    • kidney disease
    • stomach problems (especially colitis)
    • an unusual reaction to any penicillin, cephalosporin antibiotics, sulfites, procaine or other anesthesia, foods, dyes, or preservatives
    • pregnant or trying to get pregnant
    • breast-feeding
    Penicillin G Procaine is for injection into a large muscle. Follow the directions on the prescription label. Use your doses at regular intervals. Do not use your medicine more often than directed. Finish the full course prescribed by your prescriber or health care professional even if you think your condition is better.
