No, Callas or bananas will not grow from a cutting.
That stinks! Have you ever tried?

are you sure????

can you grow fruit trees from a cutting? preferably pomegranates, and orange trees.
Yes, I've done apples, peaches, and citrus. With peaches, for example, you take the cuttings in late winter/early spring, before they have leafed out. Here, in the New York City area, that's around St. Patricks Day, which is good because it coincides with the time peaches are normally pruned, and there are lots of cuttings available.
I used cuttings about the length and thickness of a pencil. Dip them in the hormone and stick them in a bed, outside, with bottom heat. The idea is to keep the bottoms warm, to promote rooting, and the tops cool, so they don't leaf out too much before they have roots. I was potting them up, in June, and, somehow, two of them were left in the bed. When I noticed them again, in Sept., they were about 3 feet tall, and one was even branched. The root balls were too big for a one gallon pot. Next spring, the branched one had flowers and set fruit!

See my posting on Hydrangeas hydrangas

Pineapples are like bananas. They fruit once, and then die. Asthey are dying, they put out pups, shoots, slips and suckers, from below the fruit. New plants can be grown from these, or the top from a store bought fruit. They can also be grown from seeds.

See my posting on Pineapples Wanted : Pineapple Tops :p

This post is getting a little long, so I'll get into some of the other things, and tissue culture later.
