Journal March 13, 2015 - Micropropagation, again

Today I prepared a new test protocol for olive propagation, however, this time I added a growth hormone known as BAP.    Eight single node sections have been placed in vitro; four each of Tosca and Ascolano.

Most of the trees have nodes forming new growth, so I thought it would be an ideal time to propagate them, as their own growth hormones are apparently very active at this point.

The greenhouse is still buried in snow, so it looks like it is going to be quite sometime before I can even think about placing any plants in there to take advantage of natural light.
