Default Re: Planting Bananas

Frank ,I thought the same thing! Basjoo on one side, and the other corm growing itself all over again.
But then again.....Thinking back to grafts I've done with very minor plants, such as Ficus; its reasonable to think it can be done!
Like....um.....cutting the corm, like in the video; but then maybe seratting each cut side to make a good contact, then tie them together with twine, put the corm in the paper bag for a nice little bed, then plant! How long would this take? Would it start looking all brown like it was dying? Iam curious!
Maybe I just might try this next spring / summer with some of them old sword pups, or the pup or 2 I may dig up wrong this fall! What do you think?
