This image depicted a close view of the surface of a nutrient agar culture plate, labeled #22, which had undergone a 40-hour incubation period, giving rise to these three bacterial colonies. The colony on the left, with its smooth, gray-green surface, represented Vibrio cholerae bacterial growth, while the two coalescing colonies on the right, each exhibiting a smooth surface with a metallic sheen, represented Escherichia coli bacterial organisms.
