Have you heard about planting banana corms upside down gives bigger fruit, stronger stems, shorter plants and encourage more suckers out?
This method is widely used in commercial plantation in Asia.
I am no expert in this and will never claimed to be. However, I can vouch this method. When I was growing up in our small family orchard, my dad used to do the same. He was proud of his thicker stem’s banana plants, that he never needed to prop up even in a bad windy day. The mother would send a lot more suckers, and these suckers grow a lot faster than usual. We noted the fruit size to be bigger as well.
So, if you are thinking about propagating your banana plants in the more exciting ways try this method by planting the corms/stems upside down, ensure the corms/stems are cut down closer to the base possible and cover with good soil. Always keep the soil moist.
