That looks so exciting!! I wish you luck in raising the seedlings .
In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
This is one of the first batches, started on 20% ms with 1x vits and 3% sucrose, seed were sterilized in 30mg NaDCC in 100 ml distilled h20 + 2 drops of surfactant.
Wow that's awesome! Good germ rate
Thanks, these are actually a bit bigger now and I have quite a few in my "ultra highland grow chamber" that have been deflasked and are doing quite well with a balmy 39 degree F night temp and around 60 degree F day temp. I will be posting more updated pics here soon along with my other micropropagation work.
I am not fully understanding how to post replies within the photo post. Anyway, here are some more villosa seedlings in vitro with their first pitchers showing above the cotyledons, the photo is about a month and a half old now.
Very nice . . .
Why the hurry in deflasking the seedlings? I have found that their survivability is far higher after the production of the first few true leaves . . .
