Default Re: Tissue Culture

Kev, I couldn't agree more. I am reading up on TC technique and will be able to do it in a few months or less. I was discussing this with Gabe too. It will definitely help the banana world and I want to be part of that.
Once I get set-up to where I know what I am doing, I will be offering this service to our membership. I am not sure just yet, but I think that taking the tissue from the explant can be done without causing too much injury. From what I have read, tissue is taken from the meristem, which is either growing root tips or in shoots. So, it shouldn't be that invasive as to cause unrecoverable injury to the source plant (explant).
Just need to get a comfort level on my own stock first. Then Dr Frankenstein will be ready to party!!!!
