To make 30 mL plates
start with: mL water initial volume*
add: mL 10X macronutrients [1]
add: mL 10X micronutrients [2]
add: g MES. pH to 5.7 w/ 1M KOH**
bring volume to: mL water final volume
add: g bacto or phyto agar
autoclave for: minutes

*Add the other salt mixtures to the water to prevent precipitation

**pH to 5.7 with 1M KOH (initial pH = ~3.66) (needs~21 drops or ~720 µL/L)

Autoclave with stir bar in flask or bottle

Stir until cool enough to handle

Pour 30 mL per plate (use the deep ones)

Pour 50 mL per square plate (20 plates per liter)
