Tissue culture is the cloning method used by nurseries and biotech to produce the thousands of clones they make every day. Microclone and Pure Food have taken the best parts of the commercial tissue culture and put them together into the home tissue culture kits. Now home users, hobbyists, and small commercial gardeners can produce their own plants in whatever numbers they need.
The benefits of tissue culture:
Replaces large mother plants
No bugs, no mold, no maintenance
Produces seedling quality plants from clones
Easy and fun
Unlock hidden genetics
Ship and transport your favorite plants
Grow dozens of bonsai mother "jars" on a media of sugar, agar, nutrients and hormone from small meristem pieces in small self-contained vessels. One liter of media produces 200 clones per month and the kits contain four liters to start. The plants are cleaned before going into the tissue culture tubes and the jars are prepared by cooking in a stove pressure cooker. TC plants need only 10 watt/sf light so two T5 lamps on a shelf grow 4 trays or 200 containers.
The Super Starts micropropagation kit contains the tools, ingredients, manual and DVD to successfully do plant tissue culture at home.
