Discovery Notes The condition of the soil was very dry and fine with some crumbled dirt and was a light, washed out brown color. The nearby vegetation is shown in the picture with many bushes and one medium sized tree present in the surrounding area.

Plaque NotesOn the plate, the top left side with the opaque yellow white tint describes negative results and contamination from other factors. However, the entire other side of the plate contains multiple large plaques that do not have clear borders. There are many small specs left over of the orange top layer of agar as most of the top layer is cleared. The top layer of agar has a rough texture.

For the spot test, there were three, large circular spots on the plate. There were no signs of contamination, as the top layer agar was mostly a smooth surface with orange tint except for the three large circular plaques, which were clear in color and in terms of clarity, were mostly transparent. These descriptions relate to positive results for the spot test.
