Here is my very simple and cheap solution to hold Petri dishes vertically :

Use a discarded PVC foam piece (usually easily available and unwanted in most labs) and cut it to a suitable size to form a flat support base.

For each Petri dish position stick two 1 ml pippette tips into the PVC as supports (use the wide opening side of the tips to perforate the PVC base). Voilá!

Note: It is wise to previously mark the positions of tip insertion on the PVC base to ensure consistent spacing.
