    Thread resuscitation!
    So I've got a access to a friend's flow hood now and also time on the one at the school if I work it right. He can walk me through preparing flasks but we need recipes for CPs. I've got easy access to seed from North American temperates, so that would be the most useful, but I'm definitely interested in Neps and other more exotic species as well. Are there any reliable recipes that use tissue other than seeds?

    Neps, Helis, Sarrs are near impossible to culture from tissue. Might as well label them as impossible for now. They have too much natural bacteria/fungus in their tissue. I would recommend starting from seed; it's slower, but is the best way.
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    That's disappointing, but not too surprising. But I meant those as two separate inquiries - one to see if people had recipes for pitcher plants, another requesting non-seed methods for CPs in general.
