A tissue-cultured plant is a plant that has been grown from plant cells or tissues, rather than from seeds. Tissue culture is a method of plant propagation that involves growing plants from small pieces of plant tissue, such as cells or tissues, in a laboratory setting. The tissue is placed in a sterile environment and provided with the necessary nutrients and conditions to encourage growth. Once the tissue has grown into a plantlet, it can be transferred to soil and grown into a full-sized plant. Tissue culture is a common method of propagating plants because it allows for the rapid production of large numbers of genetically identical plants, and it can be used to propagate plants that are difficult to grow from seed or that do not produce viable seeds.
