Tis­sue cul­ture

Gardening Australia - - KNOW-HOW -

Most roses can also be prop­a­gated by mi­cro-prop­a­ga­tion (tis­sue cul­ture). Us­ing a very small amount of tis­sue from a plant, and a grow­ing sys­tem with highly con­trolled grow­ing me­dia and en­vi­ron­ment, an en­tire plant can be prop­a­gated. Once the plant has formed roots and shoots, it is trans­ferred into a pot with pot­ting mix. Minia­ture roses are of­ten grown from tis­sue cul­ture.
