MERISTEM CULTURE: Without a Laboratory An easily learned technique using a dissecting microscope (if you just happen to have one handy), a bunsen burner or other flame (it must be in a chem lab) plus a few needles and some household bleach, then you can follow the steps illustrated; refer to OR82-216 0
MERISTEMING: Mutations Arising Millions of plants were run off in an experiment and almost all were true to type, so mutations were extremely few in that case: one run of 20,000 plants produced 99.99% true; refer to W9-223 0
MERISTEMING: Of Cattleyas, Using Alternatives Other media and methods, such as enhanced axillary branching are explained to obtain explants to place first into a Starting Solution, then a Short Multiplication Medium, then into a Resting Medium; recipes and procedures spelled out; from one explant 500 were attained in 10 months; refer to A84-167 0
