Darklight posted a topic in Seed & Plant SwapsOn the podium are five sterile culture containers of Acacia acuminata. Tubes to be auctioned separately. These are aseptically germinated seed, and are suitable for further sterile work, or for deflasking into a suitable environment for garden growth. Once you receive them they are yours to do with as you wish Funds from this auction will be donated to the Seed Saver's Network, to continue their work teaching and mentoring communities in Australia and overseas, encouraging groups to maintain their local, biodiverse and sustainable food resources. Jude and Michel do some of the best outreach work I have ever seen and they have inspired me for several decades now http://www.seedsavers.net/ Auction notes: if you are a successful bidder you accept the terms and recommendations below Plants are approx 2-4cm tall with two explants per jar. They will have another few weeks of growth in them under fresh coolwhite fluro tubes, or indirect light about 200-250 µmol photons/m2/second ( ie about 10-20% of daylight strength- more could cook them ). If plantlets get taller than 7-8cm it can become difficult to remove and handle them aseptically. Auction open to addresses within Australia only, with the exception of WA. I will not ship to WA for quarantine reasons. Cultures are functionally sterile at the time of shipping, but media contains PPM Culture tubes are 150ml, with 50ml culture media containing 10g/L gelcarin. The high gelling agent amount will help, but not entirely prevent root and stem damage during shipping I won't be held accountable for their success in further culture as that relies on factors outside my control. Simple aseptic teks have previously worked for minimal replication of this species. If you post your tek and pics to SAB myself or someone else may be able to help, but that depends on time available to me and clarity of your requests Auction bid includes shipping cost Auction bids open at $20 per jar, and auction closes at midnight on Sunday 28th April 2013 Tube #1 Starting bid $20 Tube #2 Starting bid $20 Tube #3 Starting bid $20 Tube #4 Starting bid $20 Tube #5 Starting bid $20
