dergeier7 Posted December 26, 2012 Report Share Posted December 26, 2012 Halo,everyone,I've been trying to carry out tissue culture of venus fly trap and recently I'm enjoying some progress. I'd like to post some pics to share with you. sorry for the poor img quality as I'm not a good photographier with a not so professional device,I also optimised these pics' hoffman code. .petiole with traps cut off: this is the traps: And,callus+adventitious buds: Then,I get some young plants: The flower stalk was cut off and placed on the medium for buds induction: see also,young plants in the "subculturing medium"to multiply themselves: Some books have said that VFTs could not live in High salt evironment however,to my surprise,these following pics demonstrate my VFTs can,at least in vitro,wheather a ralatively high salt concentration.Notice that the culturing midium is FULL STRENCE MS with ordinary wasser(not distilled or reverse osmoisis wasser at all).Actually,they grew slowly in such a medium but did not dead however. My next step is to widely induce callus and offer them high salt concentration in order to get a "salt resisting mutant"if I'm lucky enough. Any suggestions are welcomed!
