Benny Fulmer replied to lu mafo's discussion Slime mould growth + How to get sclerotium?
"oh, something i forgot - something else that helps to form sclerotia is to trick it into crawling onto a surface that doesn't retain moisture - either a dry piece of paper or a nonporous surface such as saran wrap or a plastic bag. they dry up…"

"It's not that they like salt, they can learn to put up with it if there's a reward. You could be right on the oil - high quality energy rich food source, once this week's out of the way I might have a play. "

Benny Fulmer replied to Benny Fulmer's discussion Soggy popcorn
"thanks for the advice, i had no idea they like salt so much...the popcorn actually had olive oil on it, which i thought might be part of why it likes it so much! i'll try plain popcorn too once i can grab some and definitely do some repeat…"

ian replied to Benny Fulmer's discussion Soggy popcorn
"Is it salted? It might be worth trying with & without. They can be taught to accept salt in return for food. They also tend to not explore once they've found something to digest. You could try setting out alternating oats & popcorn in a…"
