Aeration of tissue cultured rare Australian plants Conostylis wonganensis S. D. Hopper (Haemodoraceae); Diplolaena andrewsii Ostenf.; Drummondita ericoides Harvey (Rutaceae); Eremophila resinosa F. Muell. (Myoporaceae); Eucalyptus 'graniticola' (Myrtaceae); Lechenaultia pulvinaris C. Gardner (Goodeniaceae); and Sowerbaea multicaulis E. Pritzel (Liliaceae) has been found to reduce vitrification in sensitive species as well as significantly improving shoot quality and transfer to soil in most study species. A simple 7-mm hole with a double-layer insert of filter paper in the polypropylene screw lids of the culture vessel decreased shoot vitrification over a 4-wk culture period. The method has implications for facilitating the tissue culture of other rare Australian plants and reducing the occurrence of this developmental abnormality.
