I need to gel a solution containing PEG 8000.  I've tried agar and gelatin,
but the high concn of PEG (38%) that I need to use is interfering with the
normal gelling, and I'm left with a very viscous (but not gelled)
concoction.  Can anyone on methods net suggest an alternative gelling agent
(nontoxic to plants)?  Please reply directly to me.  Thanks in advance.
