Fungal Culture

The Mucorales grow well on both nonselective and fungal-selective media. The growth of the Mucorales tends to be rapid, with mycelial elements expanding to cover the entire plate in only a few (1-7) days. Organisms of the order Mucorales are characterized by an erect aerial mycelium that is described as fibrous or "cotton candy-like." The mycelium tends to be quite high, with some isolates reaching the lid of the petri dish at mature growth. It is this vigorous growth characteristic that is responsible for the group being designated as "lid lifters."
