Journal May 28, 2014 -Olea europaea seed germinating in vitro

The image above is a gemlik olive seed germinating in vitro.

Searching the web I was not able to find many images of olive seeds in vitro, so I thought I would hang this image on my blog in the event someone is wondering if it can be done.

The seed was placed into culture on 4/3/14 and the photo was taken today 5/28/14. 

Now, on the subject of hydroponic gardening; last fall Global Garden Friends sent me a sample of their ultimate plant cage  

I will be using their cage in the greenhouse to support cubanelle pepper plants.  The upright posts actually extend to almost twice the height shown in the photo,  however I doubt I will need to raise them for the pepper plants.
