This is a fairly detailed thread on a carnivorous plants forum describing my attempt to do a frugal tissue culture experiment using low tech methods that can be replicated in any reasonably clean kitchen with relatively easy to source supplies.
The attempt only appears to be crazy. In fact, it stands on the shoulders of published research in the area of making TC accessible in rural areas that guided the choices made (yeah, I OCD research everything).
The experiment failed, but it showed that it can be done, even if it didn’t happen that time. The cultures successfully sustained for months without contamination. The problem, in my opinion was with the nutrients in my media. I am planning to repeat the experiment relatively soon. If anyone is interested, instead of doing it at home, we can do it in the CUBE.
