Tissue culture materials consist of small aseptic plantlets growing on a synthetic nutrient medium. The aseptic nature of this material makes it an ideal method for international exchange of germplasm as it minimizes the risk of transmitting fungal and bacterial diseases. This document contains information for the recipient of in vitro plantlets on the handling procedures to be followed for further micropropagation or transfer to non-sterile growing conditions.
