See planting schedule.
Grow Arabidopsis thaliana in individual little pots (about 2 seeds per pot), 2 pots per student pair, starting 7 weeks before class. Seems to work better with dry seeds. Thin them if necessary, so there are individual plants to examine.
Grow a few seeds on MS medium, one plate per student pair. Put into refrigerator about 1 week before class, into growth chamber about 5 days before class
Make enough MS plates for Lab 3.3. Use extra for demo.
Buy vegetables at the grocery store, enough for one complete set/pair or pair of pairs. At home, sort out the necessary amounts, then keep the rest.
