Default Newest Banana Plant Arrivals - Damaged Ice Cream

Today I received 3 new banana plants. I had ordered a Musa Dwarf Orinoco, Musa Dwarf Namwah and a Musa Ice cream.

The Dwarf Orinoco and Dwarf Namwah made it in one piece, but unfortunately the pseudostem of the Ice cream got damaged during shipping. I really didn't want to cut off the top of the plant, but I don't think there was any other option. It was a shame, because the leaves appeared to be in such a good state.

Here is a close up of the damaged pseudostem on the Musa Ice Cream:

Here is a picture of all 3 together, after chopping the top of the ice cream off:
