I know that Tropica uses this system extensively. Since their
plants are top quality, I wouldn't worry about it. According to
Claus Christensen, this method produces many more disease free
baby plants because of their start in a sterile environment than
could be produced otherwise. Anything that cuts production costs
(by cutting losses at the grower's) reduces the end price to
consumers. Seems to me that's a good thing!<g>
