venu, if you want to roughly estimate the growth then you can measure the diameter of a bacterial colony. This is the easiest way.

You are right rahul. Fungal colony or bacterial colony spreads from a central point in order to cover the surface of a growth medium. Hence you can easily measure their growth.

In liquid culture, the size of the bacteria can be measured by simply counting the cells.
