Default Re: Corm propagation a success

Everyday I am amazed by the hardiness of the banana plant. I have had two Gran Nain suckers rot on me only to find a few weeks later two more suckers per original plant emerge. They say this method of corm cutting actually increases the yield of new suckers since some of the nodes will not develop if you don't force their hand by dissecting the corm.
Anyway I am just happy I have one extra plant from the experiment and hopefully more to come.
