Summary: Growth of in a thin layer of liquid minimal medium was exponential. The dry-weight doubling time at 37°C was 10 h when the inoculum density was 1.3×10 viable spores/ml. Compared with shake-flask cultures, growth was equally fast, but exponential growth ceased sooner. Aerial conidiation occurred, however, and the method was simple and permitted the collection of extracellular products in the absence of cell breakage.
