first attempts with Drosera in vitro

by pandalf » Sun Aug 19, 2018 5:14 pm

Hi, these are pics of my first attempts with Drosera madagascariensis and D. capensis (seeds) in 1/3 Murashige and Skoog + full vitamins (0.4g/250 ml), Agar ( from supermarket, 1.0 g/250 ml), sucrose (7g/250 ml), pH adjusted to 5.6, 26°C



Drosera madagascariensis after a month:

It seems to me that both the cuttings and seed plants are slow for some reason regarding the medium or the type of Agar.

Dear god. Good job on the propagation, but, that madagascariensis cutting looks like cthulhu's tumor. :shock:

yep, it's very similar :D.

Now it has passed 2 nearly two months with one reflask, but I don't see any improvement in the growth rate. It's normal this slowness or is probably due to a toxic environment?
