What are those? They look like eggs...

#1 Post by Jonnyvine » Sat Mar 03, 2018 5:22 pm

I placed some moss & soil sample in a plastic cup with 50ml of water in it. It's been left like that just under a month now.
Took a drop under a microscope to see what organisms have grown and I found these egg looking things.

Specimen taken at 100x magnification.

Can anyone identify? :?

I think that those are yeast cells. Not sure tho. When I looked at yeast under the microscope, it looked like this:
