    Thanks for having a look everybody, some of the stuff doesn't look as good as it does in the photographs right now. Recently I had a small disaster. It's so easy to make a mistake and then everything has got algae growing inside because the water that I used wasn't clean. I think I'm going to have to take a lot of stuff out and plant it up. To be precise, 50 Indicas and 50 psstacinas. The rest of them look like they are okay for now but time will tell. PPM is in my regular recipe. It's wonderful for fungus and mold but, it doesn't stop the algar. It is a systemic things so after a while you can get away with not using PPM in second and third generations although if you want to be prudent you can still leave it in.

    I have found that growing tissue culture can be like growing cephalotus at times. You can spend a whole bunch of effort and love to grow it carefully and all you need is one mistake on one fine day and the whole thing ruins. Granted, tissue culture grows much faster, but, cephalotus is a lot more forgiving when you make a mistake, at least you can salvage it. With tissue culture is something crashes, you just have to throw the whole thing away. I've tried salvaging things, sending them through a second round of bleach, it just doesn't work out that way. Sad but that's the truth.

    Are these plants for future sales or are you just happily growing them in TC?

    Seriously, how are you keeping them i.e. temperature and light level?

    I don't know, is there much interest in these species? I'd certainly be willing to subculture some up for trade if there's interest by some of the folks around here.

    There's certainly an interest in Hartemeyororum! Its a pretty unique plant.

    Very impressive b.t.!

    Can you elaborate a little on your TC process? It seems to work quite a bit better than mine!

    what kind of jars are those? they are a great size!

    Thanks!

    P.S.
    if you EVER deflask/sunculture the hartemeyototum please let me know!
