Plant Growth Media:
I am seeking a hygroscopic medium that would serve as a rooting
medium for plants while at the same time permitting either viewing
access to roots or ease in removal of medium in the process of
recovering roots for study.   Can anyone advise me on the names and
manufacturers.    Can anyone suggest a source of such media?  
References to literature would be great, too!

Thank you!
