I'll be taking the two colonies from the sample plate and growing them up for plasmid miniprep.
Both colonies grown in liquid culture are normal colored (not red). Cell density appears low though, with lots of sticky filaments. Indication that they were not subjected to continuous shaking overnight.
Also, for future reference: when performing digestion/ligation, set up a control plate using linearized vector treated with phosphatase. Presence of colonies on this plate indicates that the phosphatase step did not completely work.
Digest for 15 minutes at 37°C.
NOTE: Should've used SpeI, not PstI. Oh well, won't make much of a difference for analysis of the sequence.
Expected size fragments from EcoRI/PstI digestion: 2114, 189, 53
No trace of plasmid, just a smear of (presumably) genomic DNA. Will have to repeat plasmid prep and hope for a higher yield.
