That's a little steep. I hope they're big. I think that site must recognize that they are probably the only ones with them right now. Matt and Steve will have lots in the future, but I can't blame You for wanting one right now. They are awesome!

I just looked at some of my TC jars today. Holy cow! The B52s are going to bust the lids off of them! Steve and I will definitely have a ton of B52s in the future. I can't say for sure when they'll be hardened off and sale size, but I'd guess by the end of the summer maybe.

Matt, would you consider sending full TC jars to somebody? I mean, one or two plants in it, but still soaking in the solution? I don't know how to mix the solution or gel that is used, but I'd love to mess around with some tissue culture babies. Please let me know. This is sort of an idea that just popped up so I don't know how realistic it is.

Yes, I'm hoping to sell sterile cultures in the relatively near future. The great part is that they can be shipped internationally without much paperwork. I've not gotten set up to ship TC babies yet, but if you just want some plants right out of TC, I could work that out.

Deflasking plants isn't the easiest task however and there's a good chance that they'll die if not pampered for a couple of weeks. I can fill you in on the details of how I do it if you're interested.

I'm extremely interested. Please keep me posted. I'd love to get a few plants directly out of culture or especially still in the flasks. I think I can handle the pampering for a few weeks!

My email address is mgurley1@gmail.com but I'll be checking here anyway so either one works. Thanks so much.

I'd also be interested in acquiring some TC plants, please let me know if that is possible and if so, the details of how to proceed.

OK, it seems like there is enough interest in purchasing TC plants, that I need to make them available to people. I'll work on setting this up in the store soon.

I'm very much interested in a 'B52' TC clone also. Please add me to the list. :D

Any status update on when TC plants will be available for customers that are interested?

No update yet. I'm still hesitant to add TC plants to the store for a few reasons, mostly because of the high chance of death if not deflasked properly. But mainly I've not added them because I haven't had time to work on the store recently.
