2 new pics posted above, one of my big plants starting to bloom. I will try to get a better pic of the hairs on the bloom that are evident from velutina. Also the other pic is of one of the small pups starting to make leaves (notice the red on the stem).

Wow...that's really cool! Great pics and well done on the hybrid! I wonder what the flower/fruit look like! I assume it's inedible, but with velutina as a parent it could be very cool-looking. Who knows!?

Very nice, Scott! Musa velutina is a tricky one to hybridize with, since the basal flowers are hermaphroditic and tend to self-pollinate as soon as the bract folds back. No question about your plant though, LOL! I'm curious though: Did you peel the bract back before it opened and apply the M. zebrina pollen, or wait until the bract opened? Did you remove the M. velutina stamens? I'd like to hear more about the actual procedure that you went through please! Thanks for the pics, amd keep them coming!

Frank

Scott, thanks for the new pictures! I continue to be excited over your creation. I'm with Frank. Please let us know details of your methods. Did I say please put me on your wish list for seeds or a plant? Keep up the good work!

Wow, it is a very intersting new hybrid. If do you have seeds from this hybrid, then please add me, then I will send Helton the seeds to germinate them for me.

And what's with the hybrid Musa basjoo x velutina? Basjoo-Hybrids are the Number One on my wanting list!

And Musa sikkimensis x velutina might be also very interesting! Similar to zebrina x velutina, but hardier.

Best wishes
Joachim
