No, but they stay beautiful a lot longer plus I'm throwing dozens in there each week so there'll always be more than enough growing.

Thanks Hector, these bananas really stand out even with the low light in the jungle. Plus I still get to collect all the variegated pups they put out.

Whiteys are interesting... you never know what the next leaf will be.

Every prior leaf was completely white and then this splotch of green.

It still got tossed into the jungle.

Fruiting a Whitey is simple and I had the perfect opportunity to do it a couple months ago with that Greenie that had a Whitey pup.

It can be done with any banana plant, just keep one pup and then restrict the growth of the mother plant so that the pup outgrows it and flowers first.

All Green Manini plant with White Manini pup
