Nice to see a picture of some mature plants. I just got one this year still in a one gallon pot.

Way cool Cassie,

Can't wait to see the pictures for the flag. I am trying to get an ice cream myself. I hope I can get mine a healthy looking as yours. That picture you have posted there is beautiful.

Dablo - as far as I can tell, they each get a new leaf every 5 days.

The monster is now so big that I can't get a picture of it in it's entireity because of its location - but measuring around the main pstem 12 inches above the ground (too many pups to get lower) it measures 38 inches! No flag, even though I check each day (as a banana fiend should!). It is now much bigger than the large orinoco, and the entertainment value while waiting is enormous!!

Haha! Pauly - you make me laugh!

I can't tell about the number of leaves because it is above the roof of the house, and with 5 pups with 12ft of pstem and 2 more with about 7ft, it is one big heap of leaves, but it seems to be about 1 leaf each a week. The leaf petioles seem to be a bit weaker than other types, and when it gets windy (Ike and his pals) they bend next to the stem, so I have had to cut some off even tho' they were green.

OK - the ice cream/blue java has bloomed and how!! A huge bloom and lots of fingers in each hand.

Massive plant and it looks as though it will have lots of fruit in the bunch. I have been taking off the small pups and just leaving the 6 big ones - might ask the gardeners to take 1 or 2 off for me. While I have been thinning the hundreds of pups - the differences in the plants have been interesting. The DC's, Orinocos and Ice Cream have been easy to thin, but Red, plantain and Manzano have seen me off - and I will have to ask for help tomorrow - just so tough campared to the others!
