Elizabeth Wurdak asks about botanical stains:
Many years ago, (many, many years ago !) when I attended basic laboratory  
technique classes in London, the standard stain for botany was, I think,  
Safranine and light green. The sections were a little thicker and a delight to  look 
at. I am sure you could easily find the method in the Internet. Also,  
strangely,  alcian blue and safranine can be used too. We used to hand  sections 
with a cut throat razor.......
