Hi, I’m trying to explore tissue culture and I started with some vft seeds. I followed Matt’s instructions and soaked the seeds in a 10% bleach solution. I then diluted the container with sterile water and plucked the seeds out one by one with tweezers. There has to be an easier, better way correct? How in the world would you even do Drosera seeds?

:lol: I can't imagine fishing all of those seeds out of the water one by one!!

Use filter paper or similar (I use coffee filters) and fold it up on itself so the seeds can't escape then seal it with a paper clip. For Drosera, use something like forceps or a scalpel to scrape them off the paper and then put them on the media.
