Default Re: already fruitified plant corm for macropropagation?

It depends on the exact technique you are using, but they are not ideal for macropropagation. Better to use younger shoots around 4-6" diameter at the base. Previously fruited corms can be dug out and replanted elsewhere and they will produce more suckers, and you can dig those up and accelerate propagation some.
