    B52 . . .

    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 . . .

    Hey, it's PPM all of the way. I simply pinched off the flower stalk with my ratty, nasty fingernails and tossed it into an 8% solution of PPM to 1:3 MS (without sugar or pH adjustment); no bleach; no hydrogen peroxide; no muss, no fuss . . .

    Look at those manly, beastly fangernails

    You gonna make a huge VFT arrangement minibog to show off all the pretty plants you got? Hey did anything happen to those stalks I sent you - I don't remember. I do have other flower stalks right now that I can't bend over to pinch off so I think you should come over and take them off my plants in person

    PPM is an excellent biocide though I've not had as much luck with it yet as I have with the traditional bleach method...most likely because of the amount of time spent working with each.
