Hello all,

I'm trying to grow my first Physarum, and it's been in the dish for about a week and a half now, but not much has changed since about day 2. I'm not seeing it create any of the nice tendrils that are associated with Physarum :( it's been a little cold here (zone 5b) but it's kept inside in a dark drawer.

Is my slime dead? Any help or resources would be greatly appreciated!

I think it has been there for a long time, it has already left a lot of "mucus", therefore it does not have much to go through and eat again, it is good to change dishes or food every two or three days. When it's this translucent I'm not sure it can be rescued. Sorry for my English


It looks like you've got yeast, bacteria and little else, I don't think it ever woke up. If you have sclerotia left I'd try waking it on a piece of wet kitchen paper with an oat directly on top, or get fresh sclerotia
