Musa maclayi is a native of Northern Queensland, Australia. Its in the section Australimusa and has a few different subspecies and varieties. As far as I know seeds have not been offered publically before, so it would be a new addition to collections for most.

Attached is a picture from the Queensland Department of Primary Industry of Musa maclayi ssp. ailuluai

I wish I could get a place where to buy one of those. It looks very rare being a big plant with an upright bunch, unlike the more "common" ornamentals with an upright bunch which are way smaller.

Hi Erlend!

If you are interested in seeds, contact me at my bananaswap mail account. I have some left, and we can talk about it.

Gabe,

It's not an Australian species, it is form Papua New Guinea. (Reference: Argent, Notes from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh 35 (1): 94 (1976).)

Barna gave me what we think is a musa maclayi. It seems to grow a bit slower as a young plant, and the leaves have burned more easily compared to other bananas.

In comparison, a musa thomsoni I also got from Barna has grown atleast 3 times as big as musa maclayi!

You are right Christian, I must have been reading the wrong description at the time or mixed it up with another species on accident.

Well, it is closely related to Musa jackeyi, and that's from Australia. In fact, Musa jackeyi might just be another subspecies of Musa maclayi, from something I read a while back. I think the seeds that Trebrown was offering as 'Papua New Guinea Highlands Banana' might have been Musa maclayi.

Nothing yet from my seeds either. I just want one...is that too much to ask??

Yes, the Trebrown PNG Highlands seeds are the same maclayi seeds some of you have. I passed some to Trebrown for sale.

Does somebody have a M. maclayi or jackeyi plant/seedling/TC actually growing in the U.S.?, (besides Gabe of course)?

Thanks,

Scot, I got a very small Maclayi seedling from Christian about a month ago, So maybe he is the best person to ask. Maybe PM him, He should be able to help you.

Mine arrived dried out and is only just clinging to life, So I am not holding out for it to survive to be honest.

Cool pics on that site! I didn't even see the pics until I scrolled down to the bottom and was reading the captions for Figure 1, Figure 2, etc. I was wondering where the figures were, lol! Had to scroll to the right a bit to see them. That Musa ingens picture is really neat. Heck, every picture of that species is neat.

I've got a few Musa maclayi supsp. maclayi var. maclayi seedlings in the greenhouse. They are slow, but healthy. Love the upright bunches on them! They get massive too, around 30 feet of pseudostem. I think I would be extremely lucky to ever see mine bloom.
