I am a Masters student working on biocontrol of western hemlock dwarf 
mistletoe using fungi.  My latest experiment involved trying to keep the 
mistletoe alive on the host branch long enough to challenge it with 
fungi.  Unfortunately, the mistletoe died after a week.  The base of the 
host branch was in Hoagland's solution.  Does anyone have any 
suggestions on how to keep the mistletoe alive for a few weeks?
