seed starting on agar?
    #2961586 - 08/03/04 09:29 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I see the threads on tissue culture, would it be possible to start a seed (cacti) on agar? Just seems like it would provide the proper enviroment. I know we have a bunch of experts on here so any basic info would be cool.

That can be done, Ookla, it's been done before. One problem you will have with it is keeping it sterile. If you just want to grow it like a regular plant then soil is best. Growing on agar or other culture medium would be to do tissue culture and make a bunch of them. Seeds are good for that but you need the right plant hormones as well as other things.

Orchids are started on agar. Other seeds can be started on agar too. Sometimes it's even preferred than other methods of germination, straight agar that is without nutrients. Once it throws out its cotyledons and you wish to pick it out it should be planted in soil. Unless you've added growth regulators to the agar.

Seeds need to be surface sterilised in bleach before they can be put on agar. The agar contains sugars and any contaminant will lead to failure.

There's more to tissue culture than just putting a seed in a tube....
