Re: Agar to Soil: tc

       Beth Arnold....I don't know!...what you are asking in the paragraph of questions below?...but I love your style...i.e. a question mark at the end of every thought?....neato?....yes?...bravo?
       ANYWAY?....last year!...I recall?...James Hawes of Oakland Maryland, offered to do weekend TC training sessions at his place, so I'd advise you contact Jimbo, the Wizard of AWE's ...if'n you thinkin I'm jokin bout this?
       Hope this helps you decide which way to go LOL

Is it possible to set up a tc lab in the basement of one's home.  Is there a kit I read about somewhere?  More questions: Has anyone done this, how expensive is it, is it worthwhile, what are the pitfalls, successes, failures or failure rate.  There must be some expertise on this robin that could help all of us understand more about this technique and how it is done or how to do it so we can educate ourselves.  Exactly what is meristem tissue and what are the tissue/plant parts used.  How are they extracted to place into the medium?  How many steps involved from cutting to soil?  I read an article but still am not sure exactly what takes place.  Dumb questions?  Not to the curious mind needing an education.  Beth Arnold Peoria Illinois  Zone 5
ps...to y'all...don't listen to one word John Lanier says, bout how easy it is to go from Agar into soil e.g. two weeks ago, I picked up 400 hostas, still in the tc bottles, Stage 3.  Came up with a brain-wave to drop em into vermiculite loaded plug-trays, to develope good root systems fast.  One problem tho'...the vermicultie was old stuff lying around...pathogenic fungus virus was present; and right now, the whole works is into Damp Off!!!...see how easy it is to blow it :-( eh? <<<NOT LAUGHING OUT LOUD!!!>>>

I guess?...it might have been easy, had I used a nice clean newly purchased PRO-MIX formula....oh well...maybe next year?
