Default Re: Ice Cream Banana

It is definitely a murky world Ventura. I'm finding that out real quick! I still haven't identified the two that I bought from a nursery mislabeled Musa Siam Gold. They looked like orinoco or ice cream. They were both together, obviously two 4 ft pups that the mother was cut to the ground. It also had a small pup with a bright pink border and stem. I removed that pup and potted it. Then I cut the old mother from the corm for more room and put that part of the corm in a pot. Now it has new shoots coming out. And guess what? These pups aren't coming up with any pink on them at at all! That just added to the mystery.
