Was wondering if anyone was having mold problems when using plactic petri dishes? I have a friend that had to switch to glass because he couldnt keep eggs in plasctic one without molding. Glass ones are expensive but im thinking of going with glass anyways. Thanks to those who respond.

Agreed. Plastic works fine for good eggs. Maybe your friend needs to examine other possibilities for the cause of the mold. Good plastic petri dishes are autoclavable, so sterlizing them between uses shouldn't be a big deal

You could skip both and simply use large, thick, dead leaves under a hut. Not that this is a prefered method for hobbyiests, but it is certainly an option. Beyond that, most darts will deposit in leaf litter, particularly concealed pockets. Just thought I'd add that...

Again, this is not the prefered method... LOL!
