Default Unusual idea for a propagation experiment

An idle brain is a dangerous thing I had the thought last night . What would happen lf you punched a small hole in the top of a corm of one cultivar of banana and inserted a seed from a different one . Would it germinate? If so would would be the result?

the idle mind might be a dangerous thing, but idle hands get you no where.

Default Re: Unusual idea for a propagation experiment

um would the roots grow all through the host corm like a tumour and kill the host ? or would it feed off the host and grow a minimal root system ? would it gain any benefit from the host if the host was more cold tolerant than the implant? can you picture a basjoo with 4 or 5 velutinas growing off the side? ha ha would a seed germinate in the sudostem and grow ?
inquiring minds want to know

No traits of the existing plant would be transferred to the implant -- nor vis-a-vis.

yep I get that I just wonder about the other effects of growing in an other plant instead of soil
at 66 years old ive learned not to expect the expected every time may try it this summer if i am still around could do it in the greenhouse but temps are a little low for good seed germanaton (45 nights 70 - 75 days) or perhaps some one in a warmer climate might do it sooner i will donate some fresh velutina seed to the cause
