Default Re: Planting Bananas

I have some vague memry of hearing something about someone doing something like this with flowerbulbs/corms, etc. It's been a long time, and I can't remember, exactly, but I'll try to reconstruct as best I can. Seems they took different color flower bulbs, (I'm guessing now; say red & white) cut them in half, from top to bottom, and fastened the different halves together, in some manner. I don't remember what kind of flowers they were, (Guessing again; possibly tulips or gladiolas) but, supposedly, when the bulbs sprouted, the flowers were either striped, or half and half. Could be true, or could be another urban legend.
