  Making bulbils?
From: "Randall M. Story" story at caltech.edu> on 2002.06.04 at 18:57:08(8952)

Just curious whether it is possible to induce (using mechanical or chemical
means such as incisions and/or hormones) bulbil formation in species that
don't normally make them . I'm wondering in particular whether the sorts of
bulbils grown on the leaf axils of certain Amorphophallus species can be
artificially coaxed out of other members of the genus.

A related question: Is it possible to increase bulbil formation in species
that normally reproduce this way?
