Default Plant a piece of corm

I was wondering if i could maybe split this in half and it grow 2 banana plants or just 1. I messed up while digging up a plant and sliced a good sized chunk off the corm with roots. Also before i pot it up should i use some peroxide to disinfect it

Yes, wash with bleach water. ... But I wouldn't split it again. There is a good chance it has a grow point on that corm piece.

OK thanks what about the roots should i cut them away or leave it as is? Theres still layers of leaves should i trim them back or just leave it all as is and pot it up in peat and pot mix soil. Ive never done it like this before kind of excited really hope it works out.

On some of the corms new growth is happening on existing roots making longer roots and on the pieces of corms with no roots starting to see baby roots growing right now i have them in water in a plastic container. Any tips on when i should pot them up? In total I have 7 corms that could turn into new plants

Pot them up so they will grow soil roots instead of water roots. Use a fast draining soil.

If it has an eye it should grow a new plant.
Let it grow and then it should pup. then split it up.
