Plant cloning is old tech. Cloned orchards have existed for a long time. The banana we all eat is the Cavedish, and it is man made. It was intelligently designed, or at least selected. It was one of natures freaks, seedless and delicious, and humans cloned it after grooming it as a cultivar. It can’t reproduce without us. As a testament to its aberrance, the uniform genetics leave it susceptible to catastrophe, making it a favored meme among doom-criers (along with disappearing bees and expiring calendars).
That humans can cultivate such a perfect fruit demonstrates the principles that evolution is predicated upon.
I just remembered this and had a laugh.
Oh, and can I get a Rule 34 check?

Swear to God, i used to clone pot plants as a kid… they didn’t have licenses back then.
