Conclusion:

The agar and warm conditions provide the ideal place for bacteria to grow. The microorganisms in the dish will grow into individual colonies, each a clone of the original. The bacteria you obtained with the cotton bud grows steadily, becoming visible with the naked eye in a relatively short time. Different samples produce different results. Bacteria grows throughout the Earth - it grows in soil, radioactive waste, water, on plants and even on animals (humans included). Thankfully for us, our immune system usually does a great job of making bacteria harmless. Bacteria are a fascinating type of microorganism that play a huge role in our lives whether we like it or not. Try growing your own sample of bacteria while monitoring how it reproduces in a short span of time. Compare your original sample with others and get proof that bacteria truly are everywhere!
