    You should check out the great articles by members in the OrchidTalk Orchid Article library. I can think of two articles that might be helpful to you but there are probably more:

    Make media with 40g of mashed peeled banana, 100 ml of fresh peeled and crushed tomatoes, 10g of agar, 20g of sugar, 1.2g of thiamine, 900ml of tap water. Mix all ingredients evenly using a household mixer. Transfer the medium, while stirring, to the clean flasks. 1-2 cm depth is usually enough. Close the lids softly so that air can go out. Sterilize the flasks.
