Musa zaifui sp. nov.

Here is an update on the progress of the zaifui that i bought in August last year.

a pic. of one of them in August last year.

I over wintered them in the house... I wasn't going to take any chances with this very rare nana, and in May I placed them in my poly for optimum growing conditions!
I've found them to be a very fast growing nana at temps between 70 and 90F.

a pic from May this year.

at this stage they display the beautiful burgundy/red petioles, the leaves also have a graceful lax form and not upright... like lets say Ornata.
they also pup well too!! one has produced 7 pups and the other 9.

this is a pic from yesterday.. there now at a mature height, with the Pstem at 1.1m and the leaves at one meter long, the burgundy or red in the petioles has also become much more reduced in colour.

Thanks for looking,
