Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very stable easy to use kit I used this kit in a ScienceRocks presentation/hands on exercise for 5th and 6th graders. They really liked it. Recommended culturing is every 3-4 days to maintain bioluminescence. Best viewing between 24-36 hours for me, 18 hours was a bit too soon for my cultures, 24-36 was peak. While best viewing is in pitch black - they are still luminescent in a semi dark room (as I couldn't get our room pitch black). As your eyes adjust the luminescence sticks out more.
