    VERY nice setup!
    Congratulations!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Wow thats awesome, great work, i just got a TC plant book i order a long time ago.

    Plants from Test Tubes By: Lydiane Kyte & John Kleyn

    hope to start reading it soon, its a pretty big book

    What are you using to cover the cultures? Just plastic syran wrap? I was thinking of using magenta b caps or phyto caps i think is what they are called. Do you use them or would recommend one over the other? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanx for nice comments:-)
    Dustin: I use double cover, because I store the cultures on dusty ground, and we have 3 cats and a dog so there is hair and germs averywhere. Bottom cover is Parafilm, a waxy coating film made by some company in Chicago, IL. This works perfect but can get cracked over time, due to chemicals and UV light, so there is a second, safety wrap - regular plastic foodfoil. This works the best for me, no need for pricey plastic magenta covers and stuff like that.
    BuddhistAdam: about 2 months, some shorter, some a bit longer, depends on particular species and suitability of medium. When the medium is not good (too low or too high pH, wrong composition, toxic contamination,...), plants can became stagnant in growth for months and never develop or die.

    you have officially inspired me to try tissue culture on my own. Plus the added benefit of is, if done properly you get faster plants! Thank You very much for the pictures.

    Few Questions.
    Can any clonning gel can be used as a medium or would you recommend any product?
    Also you say you sterilise the medium, is that also done when you sterilise the containers at the same time? or do you sterilise the medium a separate way?
