Ways of 'growing' seed from aborted seed pods
G'day Everyone, I've heard it is possible to take immature seed from pods that have dropped and then 'grow' the seed to maturity. I believe they are placed into sterile conditions using a gel of nutrient or something like that.
Has anyone got information on this topic? I am having trouble with certain hibiscus crosses that for whatever reason, seem to get to a certain stage of seed maturity, then the pod drops off. I open the pod up and find it is full of white, immature half or partially developed seed.
Can anyone provide info on this process or direct me to a source or to the supplier of the nutrient solution - in Queensland Australia?
Thanks, Brian Kerr.
