Tissue Culture Technology: Cashing in on Cloning


Whoever said that variety is the spice of life must have been referring to the horticulture industry. Finding and commercialising new and exciting plant varieties that will surprise and delight customers is essential in this business. That is where Huas Tissue Culture Center Bio-Technologies can help nurseries, growers, and garden centres stay one step ahead of the game. Huas Tissue Culture Center specialises in bringing unique or difficult to propagate varieties into production on a commercial scale over a brief time span.



How we grow


Huas TCC serves the wholesale nursery trade in the capacity of a propagator of woody ornamentals, rootstocks and nut and berry varieties. We employ in vitro micropropagation (tissue culture) in our onsite laboratory as the exclusive means of propagation. The plants we produce thereby are then acclimatized to ambient conditions and grown-on to transplantable size in our signature paper-plug format for your convenience. Because of our unique combination of laboratory and greenhouse facilities, we can both propagate as well as establish high quality micropropagated starter plants completely in-house.This means that we do not sell any materials that are stillin vitro, such as stage II or III plantlets. Instead, we offer only fully-established transplants or liners that are ready to transplant right away. So our customers do not need high humidity tenting setups or specially designed environments to succeed with our materials.


All of our plants are initially planted out of the laboratory in paper plugs. We believe that starting plants in paper plug systems, such as the Ellepot® or the Fertilpot® results in higher quality, more easily handled transplants as compared to plant materials grown or rooted in common flats or standard cell packs/small pots.


We make our own paper plugs at North American Plants (see picture of our machine below). This allows us to vary the components of the substrate from crop to crop to fit the exacting root-zone and fertility requirements for each variety. In our paper plugs, we use the same peat-based substrates that most growers use for softwood cuttings or micropropagated materials. But there is one very important difference: the root system of a paper plug is supported on the sides by a non-woven fabric “paper.” North American Plants was the first propagator in North America to utilize this technology in the production of tissue cultured woody plants. We think that you will be impressed by the speedy transplanting and establishment of our small and large size products that are grown in this system as compared to bareroot,or cell-pack grown, starter plants.


Important Note About Paper Plugs: As with any containerized growing system, root systems are artificially restricted by the “walls” of the container. In the case of paper plugs, this is also true. We recommend inspecting the root systems of the paper plugs you receive for any circling or upturned roots (which could result in a small “J” root) and take remedial action prior to transplanting in order to avoid later root quality issues in bare-root production.

重点关注网袋容器: 比起如何其他容器化种植系统,根系被人为地限制在容器壁内,在网袋中根系也一样限制在容器内,但是在网袋中不会产生盘卷的根系。我们推荐您仔细检查收到的网袋苗根系是否有盘卷。盘根会对以后的裸根产品产生根系品质下降的影响,要在移植前做补救措施避免盘根。
