To make 30 mL plates
add: 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 ~720 µL/L)

Autoclave with stir bar in flask or bottle
