Default My tissue culture experiment

This is my little TC experiment in home conditions .
I have no laminar or lab.

media preparation

Explant surface sterilization

My clean "sterile" work area

Have no laminar flow hood so I had 50 % contamination.

The final phase

I thought no single banana survive, because the upper part dried up , but after a few days new roots and leafs appeared.

I also menage to TC some other plants mostly Colocasia sp.
