Francisco begins the experiment by testing various concentrations of PPM against a control (the red colored gel has no PPM in the media). Each colored gel represents a different concentration of PPM.
In order to successfully sterilize the meristematic tissue we need to:
1. Determine the optimal concentration of PPM needed
2. Calculate the amount of time that the tissue needs to soak in PPM
Before we begin hemp propagation we are designing a procedure that will keep our tissue contamination-free outside of a laminar flow hood.
