    Good starter CP's for TC?

    For a while now, I've been wanting to do a bit of tissue culture. I'm still organizing information and supplies, but I realized I had no idea what to TC. I don't want to buy some expensive material and fail, and I don't have a very extensive plant collection. I am wondering, you jelly people...

    Can anyone identify this grass jelly for me?

    I saw something glistening on the top of my Heli's soil. It's a clearish jelly. This plant is kept in a terrarium, is this as a result of bad air circulation? thanks

    Early June blooms

    Aloinopsis malherbei If you buy one of these from Lowe's (usually mislabeled "Titanopsis calcarea" see bottom entry) NEVER EVER, EVER NEVER water this plant directly!
