Does anyone on this list have personal experience with micropropagation of aroids? I'm quite fascinated with the subject and want to give it a try. Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

Leslie,

There is an introductory page on aroid tissue culture or
micropropagation at
http://www.aroid.org/horticulture/tculture.html. You can
also glean alot of useful information from the Plant-tc
listserv arhives available at
http://plant-tc.coafes.umn.edu/listserv/. I am not sure
what your skill level is, but a good book for beginners on
tissue culture that covers some of the commercially
important aroids in a general way is Plants from Test
Tubes: An Introduction to Micropropagation, Third Edition,
by Lydiane Kyte and John Kleyn
(http://www.timberpress.com/books/index.cfm?doŞtails&ID$0).

Good luck and keep your cultures clean,

Scott
