    Question Tissue Culture Book?

    Hi,
    I am thinking about trying TC, but I would like to read up some more before I try.
    So does anyone have any suggestions on a good book on this subject? And know were I could get it?

    Thanks,

    Josh

    If you do, you'll want one of these kits. http://www.kitchenculturekit.com/index.htm

    You'll want the digital pH meter upgrade with it too.

    This book seems to be highly recomended.

    The book Plants from Test Tubes is excellent, telling everything you need to know right away, how to build it if it can be DIY, etc. It's finally in softcover on Amazon.com, I paid twice the price for the 3rd edition HC.

    Check out :
    www.phytotechlab.com and send the email request for their catalog, it's awesome and free (or used to be) and has every tool, chemical, or device you could imagine. A total 1 stop shop!
    I like how all the Material Safety sheets of the Phyto Labs chemicals contain "mutagenic" properties...

    Good luck!

    All of the above is great info. Really dig into Carol Stiff's Kitchen Culture Kit website. She has alot of simple things you can do on the cheaper side. You can attend one of her workshops if they are near you too or just join the KCK listserve. Good Luck

    I find it very interesting how things morph and change on the internet..
    Geckos signature is not the original bunny!
    someone altered him from his original form.

    Geckoman has him as:

    (\__/)
    (='.'=)
    (" )_(" )

    But according to the "Bunny Society (World Domination)" page:
    http://www.last.fm/group/Bunny+Socie...omination%2529

    the bunny is:

    (\ (\
    ( ^_^)
    (_(")(")

    of course, its possible that page is not the original bunny either!
    its hard to know..
