We used a total of 50 plates with 2 replicates of each media type per site including a control. We wanted to see if there would be any growth from grocery store water misters and all of the sites had some sort of growth. The media we used was Charcoal Yeast Extract agar, PDA, MSA, LB agar, and Nutrient agar.
