Some other questions:
When can you start dividing individual plants in TC to make new ones?
Can you do leaf pullings in TC?

I'm not sure how long, but I think you're supposed to get fresh tissue every once in a while otherwise the plants can start mutating.
Adam wrote:When can you start dividing individual plants in TC to make new ones?They pretty much divide themselves. When I take tissue out of a culture, I typically wash it in sterile water. At this point, some of tissue falls apart into smaller clumps. Then, if I want to divide it further, I just use my exacto knife to cut it further. I don't know if there are any hard and fast rule for dividing tissue in cultures, but I usually try to keep a decent sized clump together and that's what I go by. Also, they really aren't individual plants. It's more like a large clump of growth.
Adam wrote:Can you do leaf pullings in TC?I'm not sure exactly what you mean here, but if you're asking if you can take a piece of tissue from a plant that's already in TC and use it to start a new clump in TC, then yes, I'm pretty sure that you can. However, I always try to keep at least a few leaves on each clump I take. For a test this on this most recent replate of my Cupped Trap tissue, I took a single leaf off of one of the clumps. I'm going to see if it forms a completely new plant.
