Really gorgeous!

Thai black are the fastest banana plants I have ever seen.

Mine went from 4-5" to 12' in one outdoor growing season
here in Iowa.

I know it's incredible how thick the p-stem gets and the hight after only a few months in the ground. always comes down to location planted, sun water and fert !

Yea,mos def.

Also looks nice!

Because I have so many palms and what not also,I can't
plant to much stuff right around them as I want them to
get maximum sunlight and because I have to leave room for their winter covers.

My Thai black bananas are in the basement right now and are about
6' tall-after going from 5" to 12'...I can't wait to see what they do
this year with that kind of a head start!!!!

I am getting Musa Ae Ae in a few days,I can't wait to plant my Rowe red,
Siam and Ae Ae together,should be a beautiful contrast with all the variegation

The Saba was in a pot in a sunny window all winter.

The Black Thai bananas were overwintered in a cool basement.
