Hello everyone,

I am looking for a specific stain to observe the cellulose (fibers),  
hemicellulose, and pectin separately in my plant specimens which are  
dried and ground wheat straw.
I greatly appreciate if you let me know your recommended stains and  
their protocols.
Actually, I have found several stains for lignin (e.g. phloroglucinol)  
and pectin not cellulose and hemicellulose but, unfortunately, they  
were for live tissues.
Many thanks in advance.

Best Regards,
