Hi,

I'd would like to cultivate L. mesenteroides in order to prepare
DNA. I obtained some freeze-dried stuff from the DSMZ  which I 
plated onto acidic tomato medium. However, I can not observe any
growth after 24 h at 28 deg.. My textbook knowledge tells me that
those bugs do actually ferment, but should be aerotolerant. 
Any hints are appreciated.

Ricky
