BRYONET: chromosome count of hornworts


Dear all,
I want to count the chromosome number of hornworts, but encounter two
obstacles now: both hydrolyzation and enzymes can not detach the thallus
cells; all the staining agents I used, including Carbol fuchsin and
aceto carmine, can not stain the nucleus. Any suggestions will be
welcome and thank you very much!
