This media is usually used to differentiate between Strep and Enterococcus but I believe Staphlococcus will grow as well since they are salt tolerant as well.
What other microbes can to grow in this medium?

Correction: S. aureus is fine turbidity not flocculent. Flocculent would look more like flakes throughout the tube.....almost like a snow globe. Apologies.
