Re: News article

In agreement, Jim, most growers are definitely NOT interested in making
tens of thousands, or millions, of one type of hosta or ornamental.  This
goes beyond the scope of what most growers want anyway.  This sterile
hydroponics, which is a really neat idea, is definitely for the mass
market, and could have very good results when trying to, say, propagate
certain disease resistant tree stocks, medicinal plants, or crop plants.
But folks, this sterile hydroponics is, so to speak, a rose by another
name.  You can do non-sterile hydroponics with good results too, and also
tissue culture with agar with good results, etc...etc...the thing to
Southern Sun's advantage is the facility setup.  Nothing else.  But very
interesting anyway!!!
