Article A quick look in the rhizosphere of pines V1. Final

No permission to download
I cut some pine roots off of live plants and put them in Petri's with sources of food for fungi and bacteria.
I wanted to visualize what happens after transplanting and how the rhizobial community (root-area community) restores itself in different pines and different stages of growth.
The document is a collection of that data. Draw your own conclusions, do whatever you want with it.

I'm not going to discuss results or limitations, this is DIY estimation kitchen science. I know that. You should know that. Unless you're going to pay for a flow hood, this'll be the best I can do at home. I tried my best not to set 'absolute' conclusions, because this type of kitchen science can't yield those kind of conclusions. I'm hoping everyone keeps that in mind. The file yields indications at most.

Important note: petri dishes are 2D, they have flat surfaces. In the real world, one could assume that the growth is three dimensional. Convert those cm2's to cm3's in your mind.

Important note 2: I made this document and everything in it, I did the work, I invested time, money and resources, and I'm a broke as F. If you're going to copy this document, or share it, make sure that you at least mention me (Wires_Guy_Wires) and bonsainut. Like any honest person should. I'm fine with spreading free information, I support that, but gimme some credits in return.
