    Ive not done TC in many many moons, but you will probably still need a pressure cooker, alcohol lamp and either a glove box or flow hood to do the transfers in.

    FWIW, This source is commonly mentioned... http://www.kitchenculturekit.com/index.htm

    "the special gel in the tubes is already prepared"
    I think cps need different tc hormonal and nutrient balances than what the typical tc plant would require

    Go with the Kitchen Culture kit. If you tell them you are going to culture Carnivorous Plants they'll tailor the package slightly for you.

    Ok cool! Any ideas of what I should use as a flow hood? Can I modify a 20 gal tank. Never though of using the alcohol lamp.

    Follow Butch's lead to http://www.kitchenculturekit.com/index.htm and avoid prepared TC media like the plague. Who's to say what's in the mix and CPs are very particular about media; and making it is terribly simple . . .
