Here is a pleasant surprise from the back of the shelf: a B52 culture that began as a late-season flower stalk back in August of 2011. It was grown in a simple media without any plant growth regulators (hormones) whatsoever; and I forgot about it until I was cleaning up this morning.
To give an idea of some of the advantages of tissue culture -- there is a second photo of a plant (about the size of a quarter), also produced from a flower talk (still visible in the shot), and of a similar age . . .
