I have a lot of pre-made MS media, two winners will be chosen. Here's the format:
The giveaway ends on March 3rd, Wednesday. The winner creates label.
1. Name
2. Name
3. Name

So on...

Contents of media:
4.42 Grams MS Base
7.00 Grams Agar
20 Grams Sucrose

Makes 2 Liters if used at a half recipe for carnivorous plants.
You may need extra agar, after winners are chosen, I will PM you to ask if you need more agar. Sucrose is just sugar.
Thank You!

No, the coloring doesn't bother me.

Could I pay you to flask some seeds for me in the future? I am having trouble keeping sterility. If so, I would def compensate you for MS media, plastic tubs, and shipping.

Thanks,
HC

I have tc'd things with a microwave and a box. Wear a mask while doing it, try to be fast. Expect a high contamination rate but, with something like H. Minor, doing 40 leaf pullings in 10 tubes should guarantee at least one or two good tubes.

Any special type of tube? I would probably do seeds in them if I do end up doing them.
