Spore Germination and Dikaryotic Mating
By Uda Kegg
Nan's Nook : Archives : Spores
Playing around with a new microscope (Nikon C1) and digicam. Pics are of a Z strain dikaryon growing on MYP agar. You can see clamps, septa, etc. The spores (also Z strain) look funny cause they've been desiccated.
here's my best attempt so
Z strain spore germinating on MYPA
Nikon Coolpix 995 with an
MDC lens attachment
400x was spot on and a bit of extra zoom with the camera lens. I had a bright lamp above the sample.
My next project is to get a good pic of spore germination. Not sure what use this is to us cultivators, just me having fun really!
