From the cultivation of exotic fruits, flowers, and plants to high school science projects, home horticulture enthusiasts have been discovering the power of agar based plant tissue culture, techniques once reserved for industrial scientists. With simple household materials or a do-it-yourself kit and the appropriate agar, hobbyists can cultivate a wide variety of decorative, edible, or otherwise useful plant species. Agar developed specifically for plant tissue culture can be sterilized in a microwave to eliminate bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms harmful to plant growth. Agar for plant tissue culture also provides the proper gel strength to support the growing plant and minimizes the inhibition of growth caused by salts found in most soil.
