    Here is the latest update on one of several cultures. The trick had been successful rooting with this variety, which had been a bit more resistant than others, for whatever reason. Some growers swear by liquid cultures on shaker tables to keep things aerated; but I alternated cytokinin-rich media for auxin-rich; and then plain with high sucrose (without plant growth regulators). That method proved successful . . .

    Thanks all. That culture is one of five clonal lines; and, hopefully, some will breed true enough to the Eden Black. They will require a generous amount of light.

    The first two clones, from the 2011 seed -- "alpha" and "beta" have been placed ex vitro, in live sphagnum; and I plan on donating a few to the 2014 NASC Auction, provided there is no high croakage rate . . .
