Hi Frankco
yes you can use the crown as explant. its very good as explant source. take the shoot (part tip crown). for sterization using bleach 10 % ( 10 ml bleach + 90 ml sterile water) for 10 minute, rinse 5 x with sterile water, and then soak in alkohol 70 % for 3 minute. rise 5 5x with water. and explant ready to planted. try media MS + 2 mg BAP + 5 mg NAA for shoot multification.
good luck Frank. dont forget post your progress
