Iʻll try to find some pictures, but in the meantime, I made up this diagram showing basically what happens after the initiation (when tissue culture becomes micropropagation). You will come across inconsistencies in actual practice, such as dead explants, contamination, varying degrees of proliferation, size of regenerated meristems and duration between meristem regenerations. But its generally what happens, or at least the way I do it is.
NOTE: The plants do not actually get smaller and smaller, I just only had a finite working space to show the examples.
