Diseases and pathogens are one of the biggest problems Cannabis growers face. Riviera Creek was having one such issue with some of its cultivars. They were susceptible to mold like Botrytis. That’s when Riviera Creek reached out to us, and we were more than happy to help them scale their business through tissue culture.

About Riviera Creek

Riviera Creek is a medical Cannabis cultivation company spread in 6000 square feet of flower space. For 13 years, the company has been known for its Cannabis cultivation in its unique commercial aeroponic facility.

The aeroponic strategy helps the company to avoid any diseases emerging from the soil. It cultivates Cannabis—without using any pesticide, fungicide, or IPM strategies—at an industrial scale for medical use, ensuring its high quality and testing.


Riviera Creek wanted to introduce tissue culture into its lab facility to enhance the productivity of Cannabis. Further, it was unaware of applying the technique into its cultivation process to fight Botrytis (a mold) affecting some of its cultivars.

For 2.5 years, it has been trying to grow plants using the tissue culture technique, but something was being remained undetectable. The molds were impacting the efficiency and growth of Cannabis cultivars and the company.


The company tried to solve the problems by sending the failed plant for the extraction processing and increased sanitization practices for their cleaning procedures. However, not much success was observed.

This was when Riviera Creek searched for other options and found Plant Cell Technology as an expert in the tissue culture space.

It contacted us (PCT) to look for some tissue culture expertise and train its members. The experience duration of PCT in the Tissue Culture business made it stand out from the rest of the other industries in the area.

Key Outcomes

A total of three members of Riviera Creek were trained and the training covered the basics of tissue culture and advanced experimental advice while performing the live experiments. PCT experts helped the staff with all the confusion and questions they had about tissue culture. The trainees now feel confident to introduce and grow plants, even as tricky as Cannabis, into in vitro lab environment. 

The members were taught every step of the Cannabis tissue culture processes including media preparation & sterilization, explant preparation & sterilization, and culturing explants into the media.

The members also learned techniques to avoid contamination issues and solutions to challenging steps of the tissue culture.

Riviera Creek is now planning to scale its Cannabis cultivation by confidently elimination mold infections from their Cannabis plants. The employment of the technique is not only going to help them reduce production costs but increase yield to 10X.
