Default Pisang Klotek check-up

Would anyone who has purchased or won or been given one of my Pisang Klotek pups please let me know how they are doing. If they failed I have a new crop of pups coming up and I'd like to replace any failed pups.

Mine is doing great Mitchel, thanks again!

It's still potted up as I've been deciding on where to plant it...
It has, however, already pushed up a pup of its own!

Mine is doing well so far as i told you in my thread. Its still potted but has grown to be about 1m tall and its a beauty! I am preparing patios for ground planting my bananas in a few weeks and its definitely going to be ground planted very soon! I would say its the most beautiful banana cultivar i have so far!

Thank you very much again Mitchel!!!

Wow! Getting a huge pup is paying off. I'm pretty sure you'll get fruit next year.

2nd bunch is about 4 months from getting ripe. 2nd generation is much taller than original plant, and more hands.

I thought yours would have fruited by now but maybe it's for the best that it doesn't, for a few more months anyway.

I sold/gave away 4 PK pups this year and I am amazed at how difficult it is to dig out the pups.

The sucker connection to the mama runs much deeper that any other I've grown. And the roots are like thick cables and long.

Little guys are no problem. I'm talking about 6 and 7 ft pups. The 6' digging bar with foot assist wouldn't work so I used 2 pick mattocks. Punched into the ground on opposite sides of the pup and pull the handles in opposite directions.

A bit tricky solo. I push one pick with my foot -- and with an arm around the mama to keep balance push on the other pick by the free hand. With one foot on the ground I pull the pup up with the balance arm - still holding on to the mama.

Get the picture? The mama, pup, the picks and me start to wobble all over the place and my wife starts laughing. When the thick roots show, several are so long and thick they have to be chopped with an ax to get the whole thing out. From now on they come out at 4 ft. Ay, yai, yai!
