Today as I checked on my culture and continued the process, I saw some black spots. I’m guessing it is mold. I asked my professor what to do in that situation. She said that it is normal, and to just move it to the side and take a teaspoon of culture that had no mold and put it into the new bowl.
The towel that I have been using to cover my culture is starting to smell. I’m going to ask my professor after the weekend if it is recommended to change the towel. I hope so, because that towel is gross. Take a look at the mold like spots on my culture!
