I don't sterilize them, just because I have access to pre-sterilized tubes. If you were to reuse tubes, I think hot soap and water would be sufficient (unless you have an autoclave). Honestly, I don't think sterilization should be too much of an issue :)

Fair enough. They're cheap enough I could always but more. I just don't like waste. No autoclave yet. Once I live somewhere else where I can start doing fungal tissue culture again I'll get one for sure.

I've got a handful of species that I could try this on

I had a hard time putting seeds on slides without losing them. I should probably get a crystalizing dish. The tubes were just too opaque. Week one is done tomorrow.
