Default Re: How to prepare corms for shipping?

Many years ago, when I got my first banana, ( This was about the time that the commercial banana, at the time, the M. Gros Michele was about to be replaced by the Gran Nain, because some disease was about to wipe out the Gros Michele. I got my first corms from St. Lucia, and, apparently, the powers that be forgot to tell the growers on St. Lucia that the Gros Michele was gone.)
So I took my two corms of Gros Michele home, and planted them in big redwood pots, in front of a glass patio door. When they got too big, and started to push up the tiles of a suspended ceiling, I gave them to my wife's boss (who had an indoor pool) and he actually got fruit on them.
