I don't know what I'm doing for that scale of work but from what I seen with my Raja Puri banana plants can easily multiply like crazy. From 1 purchase I'm growing 4 plants already in less than a year. The hydroponic one is getting massive. Its probably already about 3/4 the size of the original plant The others kinda got discouraged by winter and are just now growing again.

What Gabe's lab did was 3,300 plants from (for arguements sake) 1 or 2 mother plants in well under a years time. (I wasn't sure if you were understanding the thread or not. I'm not trying to poke at ya.)

Just out of curiosity....approximately how many plants do you guys TC over the course of a year. I'm sure the number would boggle my mind.....hell, 3,300 is pretty intense to think about!

I don't know the rate, but I know that we had around 50,000 plants to produce as of May with more orders coming in all the time. I wont be working at the lab anymore, but will still have access to a tissue culture lab to use.

Thumbs up Re: 3,300 banana plants

Seems to me there would be a great deal of interest in the Gros Michel varieties around the org( yeah, yeah especially me!). Look what Jeff Earl has been able to do with the origin unknown Ca. Gold. Strike while the iron's hot man!

Seems like an exciting trade. The only cultures I've done are mycelium.
