Wish I could let my Tall Namwah fruit at that height. I have to trick them to fruit lower to keep them under my 12 foot roof. Love the fruit. Recently had a 12 foot tall plant with a bunch at 4 feet. So easy to pick the fruit that way.

Yes, 4 feet. The cool part was that it was still a full sized bunch. If I remember right, it had 10 hands. You can see part of it in the Hydroponic growers sound off thread.

Here they are. More progress. I can kinder see some nanners!!!

One made a three fourths of a leaf, the next leaf was half length, and this one is about a fourth of a leaf. Never seen that. Usually it has a pre flag, then flag. Why did that happen?

I tricked the plant. I made the new growth that normally travels to the top of the plant, exit out the side of the plant. Looks kinda like a branch. I got the idea from a friend a while back. Anyway you split the stem and guide the new growth out the side. Getting ready to split another Tall Namwah soon as it is pushing hard on my 12 foot roof.
