Amazing. The Ensete ventricosum Maurellii is amazing too. I've never seen one sucker before. Very unusual!

Hi Ivan,

I’m not sure why a musa would produce multiple heads, but one thing I am sure of
Is that's a Musa basjoo, strange it came from North Vietnam though, I suppose basjoo has been cultivated as an ornamental in many different parts of the world.

I was looking on a Dutch forum the other day at a basjoo with multiple heads.
Here it is!

Marisha, that's an "easily" achievable effect. By making an incision to the stem in the shape of V you can force the meristem to multiply and differentiate into many plants. It's also described somewhere on the forum as Maurelli propagation? Maybe. Dunno. It's been a while. But this is a common way of forcing a plant to pup, even if it doesn't pup under normal circumstances.

Propagation thru corm cutting can be found here and the Maurelli propagation can be found here.

I believe that's the case in both examples you state here. Whether it was forced by human hand or occured naturally.


As for your post, Ivan, I don't have a clue. I've seen that site already and I would go with a random variation or a blossom deformation during forming... anything like that. It's not natural and I don't think it is a trait that can be passed on to another generations.

Und warum auf Deutsch? Dort gibt es mehrere Menschen auf dieser Seite, die nicht Deutsch sprechen konnen und auch trotzdem neue Informazionen lernen wollen.
