How Plant Tissue Culture Works
Plant tissue culture, or PSC, is a technique of preserving or growing plant tissue, organ or tissues in a nutrient-free medium under controlled conditions. It is often used in the production of plants for food and medicine, to make petri dishes of plant tissue, and to develop plants for their medicinal value. PSC has also been used to increase production of seeds, fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other products of plants.
Plant tissue culture can be defined as an arrangement of methods used to keep or grow plant tissues, organs or tissues in a controlled, nutrient-free medium under specified conditions. It is often used in the production of plants for food and medicine and to produce micropropagated plants in a form similar to that of a clone.

In general, the development of PSC starts with the transfer of cells or tissues from one culture to another, either by spores, by means of mechanical means, or by means of a combination of methods. In many instances, the tissue from one culture will be grown into a micropropagated plant that is genetically identical to the first cell culture. The micropropagated plant has already been established in a controlled environment, such as a growth chamber or in a Petri dish. The transfer of cells from the micropropagated plant to the original culture may involve the use of centrifuges, but most of the time, a syringe is used. After a small amount of the micropropagated tissue from the original culture has been used for the development of the micropropagated clone, the cells are moved back to the original culture.
PSC can also be performed using autoclaves, but this method is not quite as common as the use of spores. It takes a little longer to complete the process than the process using spores, so it may be more suitable for commercial uses. In the case of autoclaves, the culture in the autoclave medium is exposed to high temperatures for a longer period of time, which ensures that the cell growth in the autoclave medium is faster and more efficient.

One important factor when determining the amount of plant tissue needed to be maintained or grown in PSC is the type of micropropagated material that will be used. There are a number of types of micropropagated materials, including tissue obtained from the rhizome of a rhizome plant, tissue from a clonally shoot, and tissue from a seed. In some cases, a mixture of different sources of micropropagated material may be used, although most of the materials that are used in plant tissue culture require the same type of micropropagated material. A good example of micropropagated material is plant seeds that are taken from a plant that has been hybridized.
One type of micropropagated material is tissue culture media. This media is made by taking a culture of plant seeds and a culture medium that have the same composition as the seeds. This culture medium, called a ‘seedling medium,’ can be prepared by mixing the seeds with a medium that is derived from the same kind of plant. This medium is usually taken from the same kind of plant, although in some cases a synthetic medium may be used instead.

After this mixture has been prepared, the seedling medium is placed in an incubator, where the temperature of the incubator will be controlled to about 65 degrees Fahrenheit. For the next six weeks, the seedling medium will provide the source of nutrients needed by the seedling and grow the seedling at a rate that mimics that of the plant’s roots. The seedling medium will be then transferred into a culture, where the culture medium will be in the same conditions as the original growing medium, such as humidity, temperature, and light.
After the six weeks have passed, the growth of the seedling will start to show signs of its growth. When this occurs, the medium and the growing medium will be removed from the culture, and the seeds will be harvested from the medium. The seeds will be placed in their own containers, which are called seedlings. Once they have fully grown, these seedlings will be transferred into another type of culture media and allowed to continue growing. This way, the plants can be kept in different growing conditions over many years, allowing them to continuously produce new plant tissue for future use in tissue culture, or other applications.
