these are my first attempt at Tc, they are 21 days in. I wrapped the jars in foil for 10 days, changed the agar at 7 and 21 days. This is dwarf red Dacca.

They did say they had limited numbers of Saba and plenty of Lakatan.
They are being propagated as we speak, I'll keep you posted. Very exciting news indeed.
TBH, I didn't think I'd get a response.

I'll get those vials away tomoz.

I could never repay druss for the help he's given me. This is just a small gesture to say thanks for everything.

what are you using for your agar nutrients?
I used this stuff:
https://phytotechlab.com/musa-banana...on-medium.html

all ready to go, just ad agar and cook.
BTW what are you using to sterilize your culture medium before pouring the jars? Pressure cooker?
