Thanks, would rubbing alcohol work?
I interpret escape attempts as a sign that the slime mould has exhausted its environment and is seeking new pastures. Set it free or give it a new home with fresh oats… :)
OK, I agree and have done that! How do you transfer the slime mold? I have been using a sterile disposable knife made for this kind of thing. I really liked your TED Talk it was one of the things that inspired me. thanks
Thanks, glad you liked the talk. It's been great to find so many others also fascinated by the organism and wanting to explore it's growth and behaviour. I transfer by cutting a piece of active plasmodial growth from the old dish and moving it across - this is easiest if growing on agar, so it depends what you are growing it on...
