Hello, I think it depends on what strain/breed you have.
I have ordered some sclerotia from Scientio.
And it grows very fast. I would say 1 cm/h is underestimated. I'll have to measure to be certain.
I use tupperware pots 12 cm x 12 cm x 8 cm. The bottom filled with the oatmeal agar I told you about in an other thread. The bottom is covered completely in about 1 day. Then it looks as if it's thickening during 2 days and then it starts crawling up the sides.
Then I have various sizes of pots and lids with ordinary paper on which it grows a bit slower (I would say 1 cm an hour is about right) , but after a few days it will search a way out too.
Te largest container I have is an aquarium of 23 cm x 41 cm and 25 cm high. The bottom covered with agar agar (without oatmeal) and with some oats on the surface. It has been nearly 2 weeks now and it has explored the the entire bottom and all the walls completely.
So, I would say the container just depends on how much food you give it.
Well, I did.
Thanks Jaden I had herd that it grew a cm an hour and it surprised me. My mom is relived that it does not grow that fast. I appreciate you accurate, good advice!
