Hi, releeps,
Are you doing home flasking?

It is not likely you can buy Knudson c medium and Murashige & Skoog medium in Singapore.

Buying the chemicals to mix yourself is not economical as they contain about 8 chemicals, you required only a very
small amount to mix (5 to 500 mg/L). Chemical like ammonium nitrate required a licence to purchase.

I have successfully done home flasking using a medium which contains activated charcoal, tiamine, sugar, banana pulp/coconut water
and agar powder. Please refer to my post "Seed Pod" on 10 Feb 2016. I have written down the detailed procedures for gel preparation
and seed germination.

Please let me know your method, procedures and suggestion so that I can improve it.
