As far as the cultures are started by myself they originate from a batch
of seeds which was sown in vitro. So these are not just one clone.
However I must admit that I do not keep clones separated, simply for
reasons of time and space. In a few cases where I already received a
tissue culture all plants are of cause of one clone. I do not know of
any way to identify the sex of a plant.

Does anybody know anything about a method?
