The one piece, that I identified before as the most promising, is just pushing a shoot from the fraction as if it was still the whole corm. That tiny little white thing on the tip of the eye has been grown since I replanted it after cutting it - just four days ago!

By the way: I wasn't only curious. I really did spray some fungicide :-)

And on the other pieces no growth is visible. But I think I have at least one more piece left, that looks very promising.
Since then (see above) it started to grow own roots now and has further pushed forward. I'll get you an update, as soon as the roots are visible also on a photography.

Here's an update on my corm cutting trial of my California Gold! It's been now about a month after cutting the original corm!

As you can see it's gowing roots like crazy. It's the same cutting I posted here earlier. The other "good looking" corm piece has no roots yet, but looking healthy.
On the other three parts, I haven't checked in a while. I'll post an update as soon as there's also some news!

Interesting thread, I quartered a basjoo corm as an experiment last week to see what happens.

I also just pupped three more maurelii's two inside one outside to see the effects of temperature fluctuations. This is the one kept inside after 3 weeks at a constant 20c / 68f



This is the one outside after the same time frame. Temps fluctuated between 20c / 68f and 7c / 44f overnight. This seems to confirm that a stable temperature is required to maximise pupping. Not unexpected but interesting all the same.

That maurelii will still pup like crazy when it gets warmer. It is just delayed because of the temp.

Here's an update on my California Gold corm, that I had cut about two months ago:
From the five pieces I had, only two are still alive. The others rotted away.
But one cutting sent up "something" the last days and this looks very much like a small banana pup:


The other cutting is still intact, developing roots and growing underground, but nothing is yet on its way to the top

This is a Giant Ice Cream corm from a plant that blew over this winter. I left it laying on the ground, with a few roots still in the ground. Finally, I removed it, and cut it up into 8 pieces, based on the pups that were emerging, or likely to do so. I got lazy this time, and used my chain saw. Worked well.

Default Re: Corm propagation a success - Ae Ae?

I came out Saturday morning to find my Ae Ae lying on the ground with the bottom 3 inches of the P-Stem rotted. I cut away most of the rot (maybe I should go deeper to get it all?) and it seems to be a reasonably healthy corm. Anyone have suggestions on corm propagation for an Ae Ae?
Am I better to leave the whole corm intact or quarter it up?

It seems to have a small sucker that had yet to break the ground. Should I separate that?

Do I need to make sure I get reid of all of the rot?

Should I use a fungicide on it?

Thanks. It's too expensive of a plant to lose it all together.

I think I might try this, as there is an old corm on my Mysore plant. My friends want me to get pups to them, so hopefully this will get me some faster.

The winds knocked it over but we had a lot of rain and it looks like the bottom of the P stem simply rotted.

Not at the moment. I don't have any pups. Most of the pups that will be produced in the future are reserved for friends who have demanded pups from me . If I want anything though I'll let you know.

Get rid of all the rot. Some fungicide might help, but dousing it with hydrogen peroxide after you've cut off all the rot is probably sufficient -- it has been for me.

Don't separate that incipient pup if it's attached to a big chunk of healthy corm -- the stored reserves should help it grow well.

I'd leave the corm whole, it seems a little safer, but cutting them up works, too.
