Cross-tied my Pisang Ceylon so the emerging bud will avoid the roof top.

Looks like there is some significant flex on that bottom strap. Would hate for it to break over away from the house either.

Looks more Wile E. than MacGyver.

Next time ask for help in the Main Banana Discussion and then wait for an experienced members of this site to chime in.

Me either. Both straps have flexibility.

That's just great! I am crossing my fingers and hoping for a bunch or two next year.

I agree!
The pseudotem and unopened new leaf looks
like a carbon copy of the PKlotek.
Richard you have one as well?
Does the PCeylon taste like a PKlotek?

Yes, the are indistinguishable in flavor and plant appearance to me. I planted each of these two varieties in a single hole and they are so similar that now, a few years down the road, I can no longer figure out which p-stem is from which plant. If they truly are different varieties and not just different local names for the same plant (which is what I suspect), the difference between the two is very subtle.

I grow Pisang Ceylon as well as Pisang Klotek under the same conditions.
My observations:
1) Pisang Klotek easily grows taller than 15' before flowering compared to Pisang Ceylon which consistently flowers around 10' to 12'
2) Pisang Klotek is probably the slowest grower in my yard, Pisang Ceylon can grow from spear pup to inflorescence in one season
3) Pisang Klotek does not produce many pups while my Pisang Ceylon mat constantly produces pups
4) Pisang Klotek produces bigger bunches (more fruits) but smaller fruits than the Pisang Ceylon

I agree that probably it would be hard to distinguish both varieties by their p-stems, leaves or inflorescences (have to take a closer look) and both are equally delicious.

I think we'd need a proper well-replicated experiment to really figure out if there is a difference between the two cultivars, and neither of us are doing that. Most of the differences you have noted in your yard don't occur in mine. Both flower at 15-16', the bunches and fingers are essentially the same size, if there is any difference in pupping (back when I could tell which plant they were coming from, PK was a faster pupper).

The range of differences you've noted are consistent with differences between mats of a single variety grown in different places in my yard. Please don't think that I question your observations -- I don't. I just think we need more replication to reach any reliable conclusions about any differences between these two varieties.

How do you know that your PCeylon
did not die and the whole mat is 100% PK?

Ive seen CBs yard and the mats are over 20 feet apart.
PKs are very tall, slow growers and rarely pup
judging from the size of the mats@ CBs yard.
Since I already have the PK, no need to get the PC.

Thank you CB & VB.

Because I kept track of the original p-stem and first couple of pups of each variety.

Hi, how did this go? Did the plant grow well?
I am thinking of purchasing one from Germany as well, but the picture I got showed the same sign as yours so I am a little worried to buy it.
Could it be that it's just a Mysore and it's really a BSV?
Maybe the seller is in good faith but who sent him the original plant didn't send him a Ceylon.

Edit
This is the plant I would like to buy:
