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?
