Generating a plant by cloning its tissue is an exciting and challenging experience introducing students to biotechnology and sterile technique. Using this kit, students will establish a shoot multiplication culture using an African violet model, use sterile technique to develop African violet cloned cultures and induce the development of multiple shoots (clones) from the leaf tissue. Resulting plantlets may be started in soil. The complete process takes approximately three months. No hood or incubator is required. Includes an instruction manual and a flash drive with a presentation including images of plant material at various stages of the experiment.
