    Before you spend all the money for the equipment, you should study and know excatly how it works. It's somewhat expensive.

    Grim, i don't know where you live, but you might check with a local college and see if anybody there in biology or botany does micropropagation/tissue culture. I imagine you could get permission to watch, and maybe (big maybe) eventually they'd let you do a few cultures with supervision. Doesn't hurt to check, anyway.

    It's a very exacting process requiring some expensive equipment to maintain the sanitary conditions.

    It would be cool to have a little TC lab, though!

    After his research is published, Ken Uhnak is going to send me the slides for the presentation he gave at NECPS a few months ago about TC. It was really interesting, and i think a lot of people here would like to check it out, too.

    There are a few photos of the presentation here, though.
    There's no 'a' in perlite.
