Default Stress induced flowering

I purchased some new property across town earlier this year and promptly began moving my banana farm. Much to my surprise a Saba started to flower despite only being 12 ft. In fairness, it would be a little taller but I had to "chop top" them as I call it, in order to move them. Also, the clump has others that are much taller and I would've assumed that those would have flowered first. I guess the stress of the move has caused this premature flowering/fruiting.

Good luck with the flower. Our plants have only been in the ground for about 5 months and we don't expect to see any flowers except maybe an orinoco or ornata. Hoping to be in good shape in the coming year.
