Manipulation of Growth by Using Tissue Culture Techniques
Looking at the whole production chain from breeder, selector, propagator, young plant producer, grower, retailer right through to the consumer, it is quite a long and time consuming process that these plants have to go through. Tissue culture is a tool or mechanism used by plant propagators to speed up the production of certain plants, as well as to create the desired type of growth. In the potted-plant industry, it is important for some plant types to be sold as a clump or cluster of plants rather than single plants. Tissue culture gives one the opportunity to determine the end result.
