Default Re: TC question

How to do TC ...there are tons of info in the web. print out those you find useful and read them like the holy bookor jot down the important info.

The mixture - for a beginner to try out, there is no need to use expensive ingredients. Home made medium will do, the same preparation as orchid growers do.what is required, read the following link.

http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...opagation.html

To sterilise jars(with or without ingredients) and water ordinary pressure cooker is required.

jam jars, beer mugs are excellent. ordinary plastic containers can be used but need to be sterilised before pouring in the cooked ingredients. This has to be done in a sterile chamber ( a laminar flow or glove hood)

different jars that i use



germination in-vitro. nepenthes are difficult and near impossible to TC from tips, stems, roots or leaves. start with seeds first.





...and i use artificial light placing the jars on window sills, lights are filtered.


MS and other mixtures,equipments and accessories can be bought from most scientific co.

I use fish aquarium as sterile hood.

Wow Robert, that's very nice and complex! How long did it take for the seeds to germinate?

before carrying out work the inside hood have to be sterilised using bleach or spirit. The jars with the ingredients are cooked withr pressure cooker for 25 minutes and they are sterile. They are opened only inside the sterilised hood ( do not open outside as that will let contaminants in )
