Description:

The Chromobacterium violaceum is a bacillus or coco-bacillus-shaped bacterium which is Gram-negative, facultative anaerobic, and usually lives in water or soil in tropical and subtropical regions. The most striking feature of this type of bacteria is the production of a pigment called violacein, colouring the colonies violet. However, 9% of the isolated strains do not have pigments.
