Journal January 9, 2014 More micro propagation trials

Having two vials of gel left from the initial olive trials I decided to try more common species. I am hoping that they may prove less difficult to propagate than olives so I can get a better idea of how this process works.

Single node cuttings from  Jasmine and  Gardenia were taken and placed in vials under sterile conditions.  The cuttings have been placed under the LED grow light along with the olives, which by the way still show no signs of growth.

Florist's tape was wrapped around the tops of the vials to keep out contaminates; I find it much less expensive and easier to work with than the tape supplied with some kits.
