Default plants from flower bud

I don't speak the language but this video appears to show new plants being generated from the flower, anyone see this done before?

It’s called somatic embryogenesis. They take tissue. In this case immature male flowers! The end product is Musa plants! I have never tried and don’t know a lot about it. It is very cool though! I’m sure Gabe has done it. He has done some amazing work with TC.

Druss i have lots of books and PDFs about it. I will try to email you a few. From my reading it’s a whole different world from simple TC! To me anyway haha.
150+ Varieties!!. See profile for list. Help me add more!
