The hope is to get them to live long enough to put out variagated
plants which will survive as I had mentioned earlier.
I have no experience with these soft tissue grafts. Can you give me
furthter details or a reference where I can get further information of
how it is done.
If  I can keep any of them alive long enough to produce an increase
then there should be some that produce variagated plants.
