Hi RoySeto,

This is not my area of expertise, but I do know that cell culture may require the use of sterile laboratory facilities, which means you might want to contact research labs at nearby universities to get help with your project.

If you want to learn more about culturing plant cells, I suggest you do some research online and at the library.

Here is the Wikipedia article about culturing plant tissues:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plant_tissue_culture
Although Wikipedia is not always the most reliable resource on its own, the Bibliography has links to proper references to help you get more information.

I hope this helps you get started, and I hope an expert more familiar with cell culture can help you with the details!
