Fun With Microbiology On Sabouraud-Dextrose (SAB) media (30oC) this isolate of F.oxysporum grew rather rapidly to produce of-white floccose (cottony) colonies with the aerial mycelia becoming tinged in purple.  The reverse was a rather non-descript pale to yellow.  Other sources have described the reverse as having a purple colour, particularly on Potato-Dextrose agar, a characteristic not seen on the isolate presented here and grown on SAB.

Fusarium species - Just for comparison of the shape.  The photo on the left is of micro (and a few macro) conidia produced by Fusarium oxysporum while the one on the right is of microconidia produced by Fusarium dimerum.  The F.dimerum is showing a greater curved "banana" or "canoe" shaped microconidia thatn the F.oxysporum.

Fusarium oxysporum - yet another view of two parallel hyphae from which the phialides extend producing micro (&/or macro) conidia.  Conidia vary in shape from the rather straight fusiform (lens shaped) to the curved banana or canoe shape.  (X100 LPCB: DMD-108)
