Not to my knowledge. Anther culture even in species where protocols
already exist is regarded as one of the most difficult tissue culture
operations one could try. Best to my knowledge (but as I ve only read
about this subject I might be wrong) you would need a highly controlled
environment hard to achieve in a non-pro lab.

All the best
