Re: Tissue Culture ? Can common folk do it?

Hi Jude,

I must admit, I have often thought of trying it in my lab which is complete
with anything that would be necessary, but have never found the time or
actual inclination to have a stab at it.

There are a lot of sites on the internet that show you how to do this as a
home-TC person however.  Sterility will be the biggest problem, but can be
solved with 70% EtOH and a home-made hood.....also a alcohol burner.  I've
always thought the biggest issue would be which formulation to make for the
agar you are doing the TC on as there are a million possible supplements
that can be added (the agar also needs to be sterilized which is typically
done in an autoclave).

Best of luck if you give it a try and I would be interested in hearing your

Gibsonia, PA

Subject: [Aroid-l] Tissue Culture ? Can common folk do it?

I'm sure this has been answered before, but nothing on the internet shows
any "common folk" doing tissue culture work to propagate their own plants.
I'd love to do it, if possible. Granted, my facilities are not
"scientific." But, boy, if I could grow plants from pieces of leaves - I'd
sure love to.
I'd love to hear about any experience you may have had with this endeavor. 
Thanks! Jude
