This kit has changed, 5 culture cups and lids, and 10 foam bungs. The culture cups can be reused and we sell the foam bungs on there own if you wish to keep reusing the cups.
These kits comprise of containers, media and excelsior (wood wool) + instructions. With enough supplies to made 10 cultures.
The poly fabric vented containers provide greater ventilation. If you wish to produce large quantities of fruit flies per each culture, then choose the 32oz container, as it provides a greater space / surface area for the maggots to pupate. Overcrowding can result in reduced productivity.
The powder can be mixed easily using cold water from any source, however bottled or reverse osmosis (R.O.) water are the better options.
Dispose of any cultures that show signs of mites. This will help prevent the mites from spreading between cultures.
Take a look at our Anti-Mite paper to help reduce the spread of mites that can sometime be associated with cultures.
Media consistency may vary depending on ventilation and temperature throughout the incubation period. If the media starts to dry out (add a few drops via the unique sponge plug) or becomes too wet during the incubation period, adjust the water / media ratio for the next batch.
