Re: BRYONET: Hoyer's Solution


What you probably have in mind is Frahm's Solution, 1:1:1 glycerin, water,
muciladge (I just used the brown glue-type from school supply sections of
stores). I once had a student studying variation in Sphearocarpos spores,
and this solution served not only as a satisfactory mounting medium but
cleared the spores quite nicely.
