I heard of a media recipe from some dart frog people at the Reptile show. I dont recall the exact recipe. I think it look like this.

Banana
Apple Sauce
Oatmeal
baker yeast

I smelled their culture and it does not smell at all. Have you ever tried it? How does the exact recipe look like?
Thanks

I'm using oatmeal, orange juice, sugar and yeast and there's no smell.

This does seem like a easy media. So how is the portion of each ingredient did you use? Is it a dry yeast or wet yeast, baker yeast or brewser yeast? Orange juice with pulp?

Thanks.

It's basically the recipe from previous posts here:

1 cup oat
1/4tsp dry bakers yeast
1/4tsp sugar
no pulp OJ
set for 12 hours before added flies (~50)

I put in enough OJ so that it will seem a little wet initially, but after it ferments for 12 hours it's plenty firm (at least to wear the fly don't get stuck). I actually do 1.5 of this recipe to a 1qt deli cup.
