Joy Finally, a flag leaf

I walked outside to throw out some old bread. Lo and behold, I noticed a flag leaf starting to appear. It's kind of funny that I walk by this banana every time I enter and exit my house but never noticed the short pre-flag and flag leaves. I found this plant's corm in a garbage heap on the side of the road about 1.5 years ago. Now I will finally get to find out what type of banana plant it is.

Amantedelenguaje,

Please keep us posted on this plant's fruit development. Based on your pics it has a delicate psuedostem like an AA diploid acuminata; but its droopy leaves say something else.

A follow-up post would be a good idea. You find all sorts of curious things banana-wise in garbage heaps - well, I do!

This is an update of my mystery nanner. I only have one hand of female fruit. Two bracts had nothing underneath. I attribute the poor yield to several factors: I moved the banana when it was trying to make fruit; I chopped the banana in half when it was probably trying to make fruit; Winter came when the banana was probably trying to make fruit. Oh well, nothing's perfect. Any idea what kind of nanner it is?

My one had of fruit


The plant in April 2013 (It's the tall one on the right closest to the house.)


The plant in July 2012 before yours truly whacked it in half
