The Winogradsky column is a simple device for culturing a large diversity of microorganisms.The columns were invented by Winogradsky as a way to enrich for microbes from sediments and soils i.e to grow specific types of organisms to very large population sizes, much larger than they are normally found in nature.Winogradsky columns consist of sediment and water added to a clear container. They may also contain sources of carbon and sulfur.
