    I'm not Tony or Andreas but if you type in Tissue culture on google you will find tons of pages. Also the book Plants from Test Tubes: An Introduction to Micropropagation by Lydiane Kyte and John Kleyn is available at www.timberpress.com. I've just started reading this book. The easiest home style way to do it would probably start here with these guys: www.kitchenculturekit.com/kit.htm and add to that the PFTT book and gradually expand your homelab from there as you learn sterile technique.

    Good luck!

    Thanks swords, I have the PFTT book and most of the same chemicals supplied with KCK (but not thier manual), I'm looking for Nepenthes specific formulas for seed and explant. If you happen to have any from the KCK manual or any other source I would appreciate a PM.

    Also I've been typing many things into google, but I'm getting little more than a headache from it.

    Thanks

    heh heh! Yeah google can be a headache sometimes.

    I will be experimenting sometime soon with TC of Neps, the first medias I will likely try is the different Flytrap/Capesundew formulas from Phytotechnologies (www.phytotechlab.com) and probably some of the more basic orchid medias. Since I'm not trying to become a commercial operation I can afford time and expense to experiment. I did see a home made Nep formula online some time ago using percentages of easily obtained things (like miracid, agar, thiamine vitamin tablets, etc) but I no longer have that link in my "saved links" box it seems...
    Borneo and Andreas Wistuba are TC guys but I don't think they'll be exposing the secrets of their business in such an open forum as this (and of course who could blame them) but I could be wrong.

    I thought about trying, but decided it was more trouble than I felt like doing. If you're interested in the book Swords mentioned, I have a copy I would consider trading for plants.

    Swords, Thanks I'll just use some generic formulas in lower concentration and see what happens. Let me know if you want to share results.

    spec, voodoo thanks.

    carn, sorry already have it. PM if you have plants to trade.
