Thumbs up Re: How tall are your pseudostems?

Great idea for a post! You know they will be bound to get shorter as the plants go north so here's some of mine. ( by aproximate memory) Ice cream: a bit over 8 ft (with 6' pup). Kandrian: 7' (impressive I thought because started as very small plant previous winter) Bordelon and African Rhino horn: between 6 and 7', these weren't in the best spot though they did get 8 hours of sun.
Fhia 21, Raja puri and Ca. Gold between 5 and 6 feet. Orinoco: 7'. Basjoo: 6 1/2 ft. These were the biggest.
If all goes well with the plants overwinter next years heights should be interesting.
