"Is this pseudomonas aeruginosa?" I asked, looking at an agar dish colored blue-green with bacterial colonies during micro lab.
The bacteria supposedly release a "fruity" odor.
Okay, I took a HUGE sniff of the bacteria, probably inhaling some into my nasal cavity.
Nope, just smells like bacteria.
I tried smelling a different agar dish growing pseudomonas.
Yep, smells like grapes if you take a whiff. Don't hold the plate up and inhale deeply.
