hi all,

had a query regarding multiplication of plantlets in vitro.
i have successfully initiated and got around 3-4 shoots from each initiated corm. these hav now grown into lil plantlets.

i want to know if it is possible to further take them for multiplication and how to go about with the multiplication. i kno i need to cut off all the leaves and roots but i'm confused about whether i have to discared the original corm tissue or not, the original corm has started blackening and some of the leaves have also started yellowing.

I'm a first timer with banana tc, so i'v really no idea how to go about it.
the variety i'm culturing is grand naine bananas

thanks in advance
