Just keep trying new things and taking good notes of the results. Learn what works and what doesn't. Eventually you'll figure out a few small things to add into the process that will increase your success rate.
rellenburg wrote:You could at least post some pics or something regularly on here to help keep me motivated though.Hah, I should post photos more often. This time of year, there is nothing but jars full of tissue as all of the initializations from the spring are now very grown out.
rellenburg wrote:Fortunately I have had some success.You're well on your way then. After the first success, just keep repeating what you did to get that success and try slight variations on it to see if the percentage of successes increases. You'll eventually develop your own process that will give you a good success rate. And great job being so successful so quickly. It took me a very long time to get my first strike with a leaf.

And yeah, most of the sterilization protocols on world-of-carnivores.com are far too harsh in my experience, resulting in dead seeds or tissue.

Maybe this is not an optimal amount of PPM and the amount of time was not optimal. So, take that with a grain salt. Also I was testing very clean, lowland seeds. The table may turn toward PPM with other types of seeds and less clean seeds. I’m not sure. Bigbella has very good success with it and I’m sure has worked with more types seeds than I have.Frank,
