Brian Kisko ... you can adjust your mediums pH to more acid by the addition of droplets of dilute acid. Dilute hydrochloric is prefered, but you can also use white vinegar or citric acid if you are doing this at home. To raise the pH to more akaline levels you can use lye ... sodium hydroxide, or baking soda. For further information on culturing plants under sterile conditions check with the Home Tissue Culture bulletin board at "Home Plant Tissue Culture" <>. This is a group devoted to the home application of tissue culture and is particullarly suited and helpful to the home orchid seed propagator.

Best ... Lester Poole
