forgot to flip the plate over - but still got colonies (Jul/05/2010 )

I forgot to flip my agar plate over after spreading my transformed TOP10. After 16 hours I got many colonies but is this accepted?



I would say as long as the colonies are discrete, you should be OK. Just remember to flip the plates over next time. :lol: Dripping condensation can make a mess of things.
