The post concerning aniline blue reminded me of a question which came up in
my botany class last quarter.  We were using toluline blue to highlight xylem
tissue and one of the students asked about staining phloem.  My answer was 
phloem is very hard to visualize in free-hand sections but mostly am ignorant
in the ways of cytology.  Any advice on staining for phloem in fresh tissue?
