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:

Due to size many plants are shipped just a corm or cut to fit the box.. your good!!
I have sent few out that are just a ball of banana joy..

Your plants look great ...they should do well for you.
