Okay first of all, why we this method to cutting is because the plant will always stay true to its parent. I can cut this plant one time, a thousand times, it should always stay true and this color will always come. C- types, they can be a little more variable if you have parent-A, parent-B, there might be all the different varieties that might come from those two types of plant, not always some things stay true to C but this plant will always stay the same. And another reason I like to use this method is because you can get a plant in 3 to 5 weeks, I did this plant 3 weeks ago and I have a full plant that's rooted. Where as typically in Massachusetts, we don't grow too many bananas but I found this seed- banana and the instructions are sow the seeds for 24 hours in warm water, germination can be slow and erratic taking 1 to 6 months. I don't want wait 6 months to get a banana plant. I want to think if can find a better way to get a banana plant but we'll come back to that later.
