Default Re: First Timer Here ... Unsure What I Planted

Not absolutely positive, but It looks like SDC that has been grown in high light with a solitary pstem, but definitely not Basjoo. When you grow them indoors in lower light or shade, they will make a more flattened rosette shape to the leaves that seem like the leaves almost cant escape the pstem, and you see a lot of examples of this in photos on this site. When grown outdoors in full sun the norm for mine at least is the more traditional banana look, but they retain the very short petioles. At first I thought mine might actually be a regular Dwarf Cavendish because of this, but when I moved them back in, in winter they resumed the stubby shape, the leaves get rounder also. Mine go from this more elongated appearance to the more flattened shape each winter while grown in the house, then flip over to the other shape in summer. I think my largest one is about 3 1/2 to 4 feet tall right now at the tips of the leaves. The leaves look a bit narrower, but that might be from folding in the sun.For sure though, dont move them straight out into the full sun in spring, mine burn like crazy if I do this, I have to get them used to it over a week or two.

If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any Banana pudding! How can you have any Banana pudding if you don't eat yer meat?!
