Hey has anyone ever tried tissue culturing carnivorous plants? If so, any luck and what did you try?

Tissue culture is reproducing plant tissue in large amounts under sterile lab conditions. It can be done with leaves, roots, and flower stalks but seeds are the easiest. This method of reproduction has really interested me and I was trying to get some other people's input on it.

kennyso- Tissue culture can be done in your home if you know how to do it right. You can buy a kit here: http://www.kitchenculturekit.com/index.htm
But the kit is $85 and Im just in high school so every dollar counts for me so Im looking for a more money-friendly approach but it might just be worth it to get the kit.
angelblossom- thanks for the link! I want to try that low budget formula soon I hope it works! But I probably wont try it for a while but Ill keep you all updated.
