The most common thing used is the apical meristem. Basically this is a small piece we cut out of the p-stem where it joins the corm. It is about the size of a small bean. Usually, it is one of the last areas to die in a banana plant. If that part of yours is still intact, we might be able to carve it out and TC it. It's worth a shot. Chances are, if the corm and p-stem are both mush, then the meristem may also be gone. But, it wouldn't cost much to send the top 1/2 inch of the corm and maybe an inch of p-stem.
