Default Determine where the banana plant will produce fruit later the moment you plant it?

YouTube

This video is about banana plant propagation. The guy in the video says that you can choose on what side your banana plant will produce fruit later by planting the pup a certain way. Is that correct or what is your experience? Would help to know if it works especially if planting on a hill side. Theory in the video is that fruit will develop on the opposite site of where the pup has been removed from the mother plant.

Ironic how this topic just came up. I was talking to Keith (PR-Giants) the other day about this very same thing.

Yes, that is correct. The pup will flower away from the mother plant. Where ever the cut/separation in the corm is, the pup will flower the opposite way.

I have to try this right in front of my office window. I was afraid it would turn, flower and fruit towards the sun but this is very interesting to know. Thank you very much!
