I am doing an experiment and i am seeing if regulsr soap is better than antibacterial soap and i am going to use petri dishes. i heard somewhere that if you put the dishes with the bacetria on them in a container with a tealight candle lit in it with the container closed the candle will take all the oxygen out and burn out and the bacteria will grow better with carbon dioxide, is this true? i am wondering if i need to close the petri dishes when i let the bacteria grow? and if the bacteria needs anything to feed on on the petri dishes, do i just let it grow on the carbon dioxide? thank you very much for your time and i really apreciate you answering my letter.
