    Yep, I do a lot of tissue culturing. There's a fairly active tissue culture forum on my website

    Also, a thread that gives you a lot of good information for starting:

    It's a shame you can't buy the gel pre made...

    I watched a lot of video's yesterday... But I could not see on what part you cut to use in the tissue side...

    Does that make sense..

    Do they grow faster or does it take just as long for the plant to grow? If the growth rate is faster by how much ?

    Cheers Noddy

    I'm not sure I understand what you're saying here. You can buy all of the ingredients, you just have to mix them. If you wanted to buy jars with gel in them, you'd have problems with contamination. The gel has to be sterile before you put any plants on it.

    Oh yes, much faster. I'm not sure you could "measure" the difference, but I was able to turn one leaf into a couple thousand plants in a matter of a 6 months. See this thread:

    Also, seedlings, which normally take 3 to 5 years to mature, can be fully grown in about 9 months.

    Yep this interests me ...

    But I am based in the UK... Need to know where to obtain the chemicals etc

    I can't touch any of the plants till spring... However I must say it looks a wild hobby.

    Bring on the white coat... NO not the one with tie ups

    I noticed that one guy places he's in zip bags so if these was put with daylight that going to work.

    The sad part is that you need the white tissue only, so you have to break a whole plant apart to divide unless you can do it another way.

    I need to get some tools I think... to be ready
