Physarum polycephalum is a plasmodial slime mold. The plasmodium is the active feeding stage of the organism. If the plasmodium dries during feeding, it forms a crusted, resting stage called the sclerotium, which we ship in a small box. The sclerotium remains dormant until favorable conditions return, then the plasmodium emerges and proceeds to feed.

Optimal medium: 2% Agar with Old Fashioned Quaker® Oats. Optimal growth temperature: 25° C. Culture contains enough material for a class of 30 students.
