I am little bit confused of what you have mentioned. If you already have the fungi then how you have maintained it?

Anyway, normally for fungal growth and maintenance you need to grow the fungi at 26-28C temparature for incubation on Potato Dextrose Agar (PDA). While you carry out with some experiments with your fungi, you need to grow them on Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (SDA).

All the best! :wink:

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
