1) How can you account for the observation that a mass or colony of bacteria shows pigmentation while the individual cells have transparent cytoplasm?

2) What factors may alter the expression of the cultural characteristics of bacteria?

3) Before doing a spore stain, what information from a gram stain may assist in preliminary determination for the presence of spores?
