Your photo is not an African Rhino Horn, it's a French type plantain.

The pups did not increase in size until the parent plant flowered. The pups grew for a while and then sort of faded out. None seemed to have the vigor of the original plant.

The note, might be pointing to that lack of vigor in succeeding generations.

I didn't get to experiment further with this variety.
