Discovery NotesThe sample was taken 4.3m from the tree at 112 degrees and about 5cm from the surface if the ground. The precipitation for the day in Honolulu was 0.6 inches, 69% humidity and a 30% chance of rain. The soil was dense and slightly moist. The ground did not have very much tree coverage as it was at the edge of the tree foliage. The sample collected was downhill from the tree. There was a diverse set of bugs flying and within the grass. Some grass needed to be removed in order to sample the soil.
Naming NotesLab partners Lauren and Lauryn worked on the procedure together and all labels for identification were L&L. The phage was founded in Hawaii and a large fast food change in Hawaii is L&L

Plaque NotesPerfectly circular with a clearing in the middle and a halo around the clearing. The size depended on the concentration of plaques. If there was a high concentration, the plaque size was the size of a fine tip pen, if the concentration was a little less then the plaques formed were about a 1-3millimeters in diameter.
