"Living" plants?

Post by Veronika » Fri Jul 30, 2010 12:43 am

Hi, I would like to know if someone is familiar with some method, that can help me identify weather the plant still lives (some metabolic processes are being done :))? I've heard that fluorescence method can be used for this aim too, but I'm not sure. Thanks for advices ;).

the is some red color, which passes cell membranes only of dead cells, but that will kill your plant anyway, I guess.
You may try to plant it and if is it still viable, it should grow. Maybe if you were more specific...

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

You can use the "drought" method. This technique enables the rapid assessment and comparison of the relative viability of germplasm during drought, and may complement detailed physiological and water relations studies.
