Default How the Ae Ae bananas got through the cold winter.

This pup was planted on Aug. 9 08 and here it's starting to grow fast (May 10 09)


On July 19 09 we cut off 12 pups, 6 were big and 6 were small. I keep one large
pup and two small ones. By September the old mother had 12 more pups, but it
was too late to take them off. By December the weak pups died.


Here is a picture of the pups this week. The first 4 pups are the second group
of pups that were not removed from the mother. The 3 to the right are the pups
that were planted out. This picture shows 7 pups and there are 5 small pups
that you can't see. The pups seemed to grow better then the mature plants.
The five that flower this winter now have 21 pups that I counted. Most are
very small and a few are all white.
