OBJ 5.18 Commercial plant growing

Understand how micropropagation can be used to produce commercial quantities of
identical plants (clones) with desirable characteristics

1. Plant has characteristics that are commercial --> desirable --> lots of copies are wanted 

a) sexual reproduction --> variation = loss of quantities. 
2. Cloning technique --> micropropagation --> this gives us many plants of the same quality (same product)
