I think that they are closer to the ground and so the wind doesn't clean the junk (dry flower petals midway though the bunch, and some dry male flowers at the bottom. Other that that I have no idea!

bunch of dwarf namwa. You can see the spider webs and other stuff on there

I am so new to this!! I just bought 2 Banana plants, each about 4 ft. tall and I planted them close by my house. They are beautiful and one of the plants have had 2 babies, ( I feel like a Grandma!). I check on them all the time and I have had 4 huge leaves unfurl in the last week. I was just wondering if I need to put a little Miracle Grow on them? Thanks ! Susan

Better speed up the banana consumption! You have about three days to eat a hundred plus bananas. Good luck!
