Re: Agar to Soil: tc

Here is a subject I would like to know more about.  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.
