Rose Stem Pascalization

Our friend Roger needed to sterilize some rose stems for a cloning experiment, and he was curious to know if this could be done using hydraulic pressure, similar to the way milk and other foods are sterilized. In the industry, this process is called Pascalization. We tried this home-brewed method of Pascalization using a hydraulic pump and a pressure chamber.
