The plant is a beautiful plant and prolific pupper and seems to like a container.
So far it overwinters well in the basement under cfl's along with a few others.
The plant seems to be a disappointment as well as a few other plants that have been implied as short cycle for northern climates

I have had it for 2 years....grown in good conditions, and my Basjoos and Orinocos and Brandywines still beat it.

For me it seems a container banana plant will take up to 5 seasons before I get a flower, so I have some time left.

I know the plant does well in warmer zones and longer grow seasons and the folks really seem to enjoy them.

The plant was sold by by forum member as a super short cycle plant in cooler zones.

It was implied the plant was a short cycle plant and would go from pup to flower, and give delicious fruit in less than a year in northern zones right out of the box.
