Default Re: How to prepare corms for shipping?

Many years ago, when I got my first banana (this was about the time when there was the big scare that the commercial banana of the time, M. Gros Michele, was subject to a disease that was about to wipe it out, so the world production shifted to M. Gran Nain, but my first nana came from St. Lucia and, apparently, the powers that be, forgot to tell the growers on St. Lucia, that Gros Michele was no more.)
I brought a couple of corms from St. Lucia home with me, and put them in big redwood pots in front of a glass patio door. When they got too big, and started pushing up the panels in the suspended ceiling, I gave them to my wife's boss (who had an indoor pool), and he actually got fruit on them.
