    Hi folks,

    I just got my first tissue culture kit and I am experimenting with various plants. On the top of my list of plants I want to try is Nepenthes. I was wondering if any one had experience with nepenthes tissue culture and if so if they could email me with some advice or recipes.

    thanks

    Andre

    i wouldnt try nepenthes becuase ive heard they have a natural symbyosis with a certain bacteria or fungus and is pretty hard to T/C
    just my thoughts

    hellz- where do you the majority of neps come from? almost all of them are straight from laboratories.

    i think your thinking of orchid seed [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    and yeah, i want a home tc kit, too!

    Nepenthes can only be grown in TC from seed. Once the plant starts growing it forms a symbiotic with some bacteria.

    TC isnt difficult to do......its a pain to do w/o contamination. the process is quite simple though. just need everything completely sterile.

    Meristem culture has so far proven to be rather unsuccessful.
    Seed is the best way to go.

    Hi Peter,

    It appears that the bacteria you mentioned might live within the seed according to: Nepenthes seed
