Re: Tissue culture

If you look in the orchid literature there may be articles for home tissue culture (American Orchid Society Bulletin, Orchid Review). Articles and descriptions for asceptic sowing of orchid seed are there, and the matter of excising a meristem (undifferentiated growth point) asceptically would take a little practice on surgical skill. With a sterile cabinet and a pressure cooker much can be done. If the tissue culture requires a liquid rather than solid medium something like a rotary shaker would also be worth an investment.
