Question:
I am interested in trying to micro-propagate interesting individuals of trees (Australian pine, I believe) and wildflowers ( trilium grandiflorum)and other species. Usually I find interesting sports that I would like to cultivate. Have pines and wildflowers been meristem cultured? Where can I find resources on this subject? Thank you for your help and comments. Is there a system of micropropagation that would be suitable for classroom trials?
