PETRI DISH GARDEN --
Art in Petri dishes
Billions and billions of bacterial landscape architects pruning -- no less in environments poisoned with antibiotics -- other bacterial landscape architects, dead or alive, to form dazzling arabesque parterres. The self-organizing embroidery of organisms in constant Darwinian mode.
beautiful bacteria : a gallery of gardens in a petri dish
I recently did plant research at the University of Paris. Why didn't my Petri dishes ever turn out this way? That's what I want to know!
Bacteria at their most attractive. A garden of sorts. That I almost can't stop looking at.
Pretty...icky...no, pretty. Well, kinda icky. But definitely pretty.

Nature is still an amazing thing.
