Default Virus?

I have read all the conversations here and have greatly enjoyed it. I want to ask if anyone else here is endeavouring to insert a "color break" virus into clean banana plants.My efforts (unsucessful)have been to pulp Ae Ae tissue into the base of the corm of other non-vartiegated bananas.My premise is --When Agri-Starts mericloned Ae AE --the plants were NOT variegated. To me this indicated the color break was viral in origin . If true THEN why not inject Ae Ae pulp into the base of the corm of --for instance-- a Basjoo plant and produce variegated Basjoo??? So far NO success But perha
ps worth more effort.Don Hudson
