Question slicing a corm

just a thought but was wondering can you slice a corm vertically into say 1/2 inch slices like slicing a tomato and plant them will the slices grow a new banana plant or will they just rot and die

Default Re: slicing a corm

It seems to me they would, but special care may be needed.

Some would probably grow, but you’d have better luck cutting them like an orange to make wedges. 4 pieces is fine, you could try more but better to try on larger corms.

You have to make sure that there are growing points.
Kinda like a potatoes eyes. If your corm piece doesn't have
One it wont sprout.

Dig up a corm and have a look. Thats the best way to see what they look like.
just wash off the dirt and they're not hard to spot.

Varieties and the size of a corm will be the difference in how many you'll have.
Not every knarly corm piece will grow if you just cut it up and plant it.
That's the point.
