River birch micropropagation

This is the second posting of the same article, so if you responded the 
first time, you don't have to this time.

Does anyone have any clue on initiating Betula nigra in tissue culture?  
My cultures are about five months old and are still alive but the number 
is gradually going down.  They keep producing primordia near the medium 
surface but these never develop.  Right now they're on Woody Plant Medium 
with 0.01 micromolar thidiazuron.

I'd appreciate any help since this is a selected tree from western North 
Dakota and river birch isn't supposed to grow there.  This is basic 
research and information will not be used commercially.

Thank you.
