Plant Tissue Culture12 Jan 2012
Most Plant Tissue Culture are store bought. When choosing the Plant Tissue Culture in the store, be sure to choose a plant that has green leaves and lots of flower buds. If the plant is at all weepy or the leaves are limp, this plant will probably not do well and may be diseased. A good choice will produce a rewarding plant.
When you are ready to plant your Plant Tissue Culture, you must first prepare the soil. Plant Tissue Culture prefer an acidic soil and need to have good drainage. Therefore you must loosen the soil that it will be planted in about six to eight inches down. Also, be sure to test the acidity of the soil and adjust it accordingly. When creating the hole that it will be planted in, be sure to give it just enough room so that the root ball will be even or just above the earth. If planting more than one bush, be sure to space them with a few feet between to give the roots ample room to spread.
In the fall, prune the bush back to promote new Plant Tissue Culture and full growth for the following spring. Be sure to allow for fresh spring growth when pruning. The second growing season tends to have small amounts of growth, but in the third and thereafter the plant will really take off. Keep that in mind when pruning. Be sure there’s enough room for growth above the ground as well as below.
