Default Malt Extract Agar?

Would Malt extract agar work for tissue culturing? Should I add plant sugars?

I use gelatin and MS salts. Works great! I like the gelatin over agar because it’s crystal clear and you can see much better! Especially for embryo rescue.
150+ Varieties!!. See profile for list. Help me add more!
