I mentioned tissue culture in an earlier posting, and am now getting
numerous request for further information.

This is a technical field, and can't be taught by e-mail. Also, you
should realize that doing it the normal way requires $500 - $4000.
worth of apparatus.

If you want to get your feet wet, I would suggest a tissue culture
kit from a bio supply house, such as Carolina Biological Supply,
Burlington, NC. I don't have the street address, but this should
suffice. They have kits for $20 - $50 for D. muscipula and D. capensis.

Write to them and tell them what you want.

Good luck and plan to see more fungus than you ever knew existed!
