Hi Mark, thanks.

This is my first Dwarf Manini so I won't know until it flowers, but I would be happy with 60-70% similar to the Highgate & Gros Michel. As of now it only has 4 pups and I'm just kind of hoping that the pups are also dwarfs.

I once built a tall greenhouse for my Ae Ae but it was not tall enough even at 16'. My Ae Ae died after being planted in the ground. Maybe a dwarf could fit in my new greenhouse. Look forward to seeing how these do for you.

Where did you get this dwarf? It wasn't just a sport you found off your other manini?

The second of the two is shooting today, also at under 8'.

There are 5 other members growing pups from these two plants, so we should have plenty of data in the future.
