Bringing plant tissue culture to the home and classroom since 1998

Plant tissue culture (micropropagation, cloning, in vitro culture) is a method of plant propagation that
  • involves growing pieces of plants (shoot tip, node, leaves, etc.) in a sterile environment
  • producing numerous new plants ("plantlets") year-round
  • using supplies from your kitchen or classroom

In the past, this was restricted to university  and industry laboratories but since 1998 we have been teaching people how to do this in their kitchens and classrooms using inexpensive supplies.
