8 foot pstem with 8 +foot leaves = 15 feet in height

Height varies year to year with the same mat......Just like Basjoos.
The 2 -3 year old pups are the tallest.....and it varies year to year depending on your soil quality

About the same here in Texas. Mine have a pstem height of about 7-8’ tall. 2nd year mat. It has been proven Mekong Giant is actually Musa itterians var itterians. Not the 40’ monster it is claimed to be.

Saba or kanderian would be your tallest choices in my opinion. Even a well cared for tall namwa can easily get 17’.

Right now ....at ground level.
I suspect in March the plant will wake up and grow.

I put one under lights.....Cfl's@5000K. Very very inexpensive.

I also put a few variegated plants under the same canopy /12 foot ceilings ...

The original poster seems to be a1 post and gone.....
