Anyone ever cloned a bulb?
Anyone had any experience in cloning a bulb and whether it is worth it?
Got a white rain lily that has produced a double bloom a couple of years ago, i.e, a double seed head. I lost site of the bulb amidst the rest of the rain lilies. When it produced the doubled headed bloom again this past year, I kept track of it. Upon the last bloom of the season, I dug it up and moved it around to the other side of the house so as to keep track of its blooms.
I'm wondering whether cloning would replicate this feature? And, if so, it would take a few years before it was old enough to set a bloom. Right?
Can anyone share experience over this? And is it worthwhile to give this further consideration? Is this something I can do by myself or would it be better to send this bulb off to a lab?
What's your thoughts on this?
