Sowing Seeds in Sterile Vapor Stream

Post by naturegirl72 » Sat Jan 28, 2012 6:57 am

Thank you, Alain, for the description! I would love to at least learn how to get keikis or make stem props... Still reading on the sowing topic :oops:
Do you have a sterile box?

No Sylvia, I don't. I'm working in my kitchen, 30cm above boiling water, in the water vapor flow.

I forgot to tell that I'm using the same water that I'm using for watering my orchids. And I'm always using low fertilizer in that water. So don't forget to feed the spikes! ;)

Alain,

Would you mind telling us a bit more about your working in the sterile vapor stream? Do you just boil a lot of water in a larger pot? How do you do the seed sowing portion? a steralized syringe? Sorry, this just sounds intriguing, and I'd love to know more.

You know it's a great forum when you search for "bellina" and it returns this from the server:

Probably I should better split the thread here and move it to Propagation - Flasking...
What do you think?

Maybe you should move the whole thread to the propagation forum. I don't know why I put it in the species section to begin with. :think:

Seems appropriate to me. Or maybe Alain will just explain in a new thread?

Hope that's fine now... Just thought it no longer belonged to Cody's thread. Alain sent me a link to an intersting page which can also be read in English:
