Slime maze game

"Curious how this turned out! Especially curious if growth seems to be affected by the ball rolling around (i.e. movement)!"

Slime maze game

"If you painted the wall tops with something it didn't like and filled the paths with clay, I bet it'd work. I wonder if it knows it's on a curved surface? "

Slime maze game

No idea what to expect...but basically found this maze ball game and drilled a hole in either end through the plastic. Oat flakes went in one side and physarum in the other. Let's see what happens. My guess: it cheats. Will report back faithfully.

Physarum after 1 week of growth

Got my first slime in the mail from Carolina 1 week ago today, was a tiny speck in some agar.(PS I think I have heard when Physarum climbs walls of a container it is trying to escape to look for nutrients. Does this mean it is underfed?)

"Thanks - I had the same thought with oat milk haha. Appreciate the insight. "

"Liquid culture takes some effort - they need constant agitation and the medium is very rich so needs sterility. I was wondering if stirring them in oat milk might do the job but I find oat culture too convenient. I'm not sure if fuligo will…"
