Abstract: Rapid multiplication of taro plants by using corm sections was explored. Normally dormant buds on the corm can be stimulated to grow, and plantlets can be obtained from corm sections containing one of these buds. Buds on the upper part of the corm (the youngest part) were more readily stimulated to grow. Plants from corm sections grew as well as those from huli, but plants from huli were more uniform in growth.
