Cryptocoryne tissue culture / micropropagation Part 1

BY GHAZANFAR GHORI – FEBRUARY 26, 2010

Due to popular demand, I’ve written up a series of articles on Micropropagation of Cryptocoryne.

This is the first of a series of articles to come.

Introduction

Micropropagation is a technique used to propagate plants using small fragments of the growing tip, stem, leaves, flowers and sometimes even just individual cells of a parent plant. It is often used to rapidly propagate plants for commercial use, especially in the case of plants that do not reproduce rapidly by regular means. Walk into a Garden Center today, and chances are, the plants you see there for sale were likely produced via this technique...

Cryptocoryne tissue culture / micropropagation Part 2

BY GHAZANFAR GHORI – MARCH 29, 2010

Although I’ve always been a little interested in micropropagation, my recent obession with Cryptocoryne is what pushed me into actually trying it out. Cryptocoryne are not exactly fast growing plants. They’re not easy to flower, let alone artifically pollinate to try and get seeds. Additionally, their natural environments are increasingly under threat by development. Sounds like a great candidate for micropropagation!

Over the last year or so, I’ve been experimenting with Micropropagation of Cryptocoryne and Lagenandra. Although a lab would be ideal, it’s quite possible to do this at home. In the next part of this article, I will document techniques and procedures of how to propagate these aroids.

Cryptocoryne nurii tissue culture success!

BY GHAZANFAR GHORI – JULY 22, 2010

It’s been a while since I posted anything – its just been real busy lately. I figured I had to put up a quick little update on my tissue culture experiments with C. nurii.

Pictures are worth a thousand words…
