Hello!

This might seems like a silly question, but can cultures be "made"? This sounds wrong to me. They can be prepared, started, grown...but not made!? Am I wrong?

Simplified example: "Cultures were made in broth and on blood agar plates."

Once again, thank you very much for your time!

I would say that when they're grown, they are, effectively, made. However, I find "made" the least natural choice.
