Default in vitro first sprout

sharing with everyone my low tech set up and my first in vitro neps seeds germination. seeds sterilisation was using clorox and media was home made.

contamination rate was very high for me. There are several reason - from the glass hood ( fish aquarium ) construction method, sterilisation and handlings.



jars and containers were placed on window edge where it was bright and warm



still no germination



the first sprout among all the jar

hee..hee not that fast. I'm still a new hand in this field. Just curious and to try out the media preparation and sterilization method.

Harris the agar can be bought from any grocery stores or where those specialised in selling ingredients for cakes making.

Thanks rhealk

Harris, it's fine to answer yor question here since i searched all the info online. There are many, read through, pick up the details and note down.

Media preparation and sterilising procedure were similar to orchid seeds.

http://www.flytrapcare.com/tissue-culture-basics.html

http://www.phytotechlab.com/Technica...e%20Techniques

Instead of using autoclave i use home pressure cooker to cook the media for 20 minutes ( take the reading once the pressure built up ). Dont use/share the pr.cooker for home food preparation. Get a new one. There are many brand to choose. A China made cost approx RM130.00 which, like most for home use, will achieve 15 psi. Any less cooking have to be adjusted.

Cooked media in jar - leave them for 7 days or longer to make sure no mold form.

If still have doubt please post here so every member can discuss.

Wow, great effort, Robert. Perhaps, someday later you can market your 'sealed-pre-repared-in-vitro-jar' for commoners like me who want to try in vitro but do not have the expertise and equipments (and patients!).
Thank you for sharing.

Hi Robert. Congratulations! Hey, you (and others) might want to check out;
http://www.hometissueculture.org
A friend of mine in the US just took one of their workshops and was impressed. I've seen the website for years but never got into it myself. Carol, who started it is great and Frank (president) has a whole series of Nep TC videos on you-tube as well. The also sell/ship supplies of all sorts.

Best of luck with the rest!
~Shawn
