Need help securing my experiment

Hello everyone, I am looking to develop an independent study this semester on slime mould after being introduced to it last semester. I would like to test its limitations; for example is there a limit to the distance it can detect a food source, and if so how well can it navigate an obstructed path at the limit of sed distance. I am however worried that the agar in such an experiment will be too exposed and that fungal/mould growth can inhibit the study. I have entertained the idea of treating…See More

"I use this trick - put an additional couple of smaller pieces of paper under your culture when you're drying down - the slime will collect over them as it's damper than the surrounding area so you'll get a thicker layer when it dried"

"They do vary in colour - It could be light exposure or response to something in the tree bark. If your slime is exposed to light that might make it bunch up and start to clump - it's a preparation for spore forming and it's basically…"

"The second finding was that I put the slime mold in a wet box for 3 days, then it turned into a sclerotoid-like thing, tough, yellow, but unable to recover.but the real sclerotium is fragile Do you know what the reason is?"
