Well, I've produced about 6 new banana plants, but with no bananas. It's
easy to propagate them that way. When they send a floating leaf to the
surface, I let them float for a while (normally a week or so), then I
clip the stem about 5 inches below the leaf. Then let the leaf float
until roots appear at the bottom of the stem. Once the roots develop,
I clip the stem about an inch above the roots, and plant it. A week
later, it's a baby banana plant.
I'd like to find out how to make them create new plants with bananas.
