Journal July 5, 2014 - Miniature rose in vitro
On June 7, 2014 I cut a single leaf from a miniature rose plant that Ava had given her grandmother last Mother's Day. The leaf was cut into several sections, which were then placed in vitro.
This is the very first time I have attempted a leaf cutting, so I really don't know what to expect. That said, one month later callus cells are beginning to form on the leaf sections, so I am hoping that soon new plants will begin to grow from the callus.
