You already got basic data for the tissue culture from different people.
There is nothing to add in reference to the formulas but there is a trick
getting plant material sterile:Species like D. binata or D. capensis
often produce flower stalks and it is easier getting these parts sterile,
because the tissue is not as soft as leaves. When sterile planted, the
stalks will soon produce buds.

Hope, the message reaches you in time and helps
