Any suggestions? Do you think these will survive and grow roots?
We move a lot of banana and platano plants around here in trying to tidy up an overgrown area of our property.
We normally cut the plant down to about 18" or 1/2 meter in height.
I have had corms that have been cut into quarters with growth eyes in each piece that mature into healthy plants.
