Tissue Culturing & Other Propagation Techniques of Banana Plants This forum is for discussing propagation techniques of banana plants. Tissue culturing is the popular process of creating clones from a source plant. There are other techniques to propagate banana plants however, such as nicking corms or dividing corms.

Default Tissue Culture Workshop in Plametto, Florida

I was asked to share this information with member of our forum here. Date is still being worked out, but expected to be in early July. The workshop will be taught by Carol M. Stiff, Ph. D., President and Founder of Kitchen Culture Education Technologies, Inc. For more details, see How to Propagate Plants Start.

I'm hoping we can have one in California some day.

Update for this workshop:

Quote:
Hi,

Several on this group responded positively to a poll or announcement I made about a Plant Tissue Culture Workshop in SW Florida and I wanted to send a general update.

Thanks to your responses it looks like there will be a workshop on 9 July in Palmetto Florida. Our instructor Dr. Carol Stiff has the information up on her web site:
Home Tissue Culture* Group
Home Tissue Cutlure Workshops

I have posted also posted a “Why Tissue Culture” essay and updated the information about the workshop on:
How to Propagate Plants Start

If you are still interested please check out this updated information. Space is limited to 20 students. You can write to me (address below my name) or to Carol direct with questions to request a PDF flier and comments at: carol@kitchencultureEducation.org

If you know someone who might be interested please pass this along. Again my thanks for your interest,

Bob Cannon
SW Florida USA

This looks like it's going to be a replay of our attempt to run a TC workshop last year. I had gotten a couple of e-mails ffom Bob Cannon and, the other day, one from Carol also. As I'm in New York, and the conference was to be in Florida, it involved a little planning, and cash outlay, on my part. When I figured I had the flights and hotel figured out, I thought that I'd better get signed up for this thing, so i'd have some place to go, when I got to FL. I sent an e-mail to Carol, asking if I could still sign up, and she said I could, at her web site. When I got there, I saw that she had one scheduled for Rutgers University, two weeks after the Florida one. Since going to the one in Florida would set me back about six or seven hundred bucks, and Rutgers is a half hour drive from my home, I asked if I could go to that one instead, if there was room, and the date was firm.
She came back and said the date for New Jersey (July24) was not firm, and they only had 2 people signed up for it, and only 5 for FL, so she doubted either one would go off. Now if we could get a lot of people from NY/NJ/PA to sign on, we could get the one at Rutgers to go.

PS - There's one in California, acouple of weeks, after NJ, that's sold out with a waiting list!

John, the one in San Jose is one that I organized and posted here in a separate thread. I had tested the waters for interest with some California Rare Fruit Grower chapters and decided it was good and that workshop sold out in less than a week! I wish I had done this earlier.

Wish we had the same interest level here, that you have in CRFG. Good luck with that one.

There is a CRFG chapter in Texas and Ed Self from there had checked for interest in a TC workshop a few months back. You might go to the CRFG.org site and contact the chapter through there to let them know you'd be interested as they might give it a try again.

I had signed up for one they were trying to put together, for Vegas, in March '09, but we couldn't get enough people, so it was cancelled. It seems like that is the case again, but Dr. Stiff hasn't entirely given up. We may be able to pull the Rutgers one off yet. Las Vegas was a little far for me to go but, because of the gambling, you sometimes can get some pretty cheap deals there
