How many calendar months (from peeper to flower including dormant winter) does it take for your dwarf namwas to flower? Do you find them faster to flower than tall namwas?

I have a number of blooms during the winter. Only the frost & freeze killed them. ... I think you are right about the Dwf Namwah. The bloom size may be relative to the pstem size. The new Dwf Namwah bloom pictured is on a 4 ft pstem. While the big bloom is on a pstem about 8 ft that was cut off early in the spring. Anyway I'm watching the differences.

I don't keep up with it that way. These are mats that I don't cut the pups off. Now I'm starting to get 2, or 3 fruiting pstems and 3 to 5 pups all on the same corm. ... I'll count the Dwf Namwah mat later. 5 pstems of this mat are fruiting but not all on the same corm .... Originally 5 corms were set out in this mat.

The Dwf Namwah mat has 15 pstems 4 ft & taller & 14 pups 3 ft & smaller. 5 of those are currently fruiting. .... The big corm has 5 pstems; 3 of those are fruiting and 5 pups. Another corm has 4 pstems (1 fruiting) and 4 pups. The other 3 original corms, the pups and pstems are a little more spread out, meaning some of these are corms/pstems that grew from a rhizome and not the mother corm. .... Just a note and using TyTy nursery (TyTy, Ga) pricing; this Dwf Namwah mat is worth about (15 X $180 plus pups 14 X $60) $3500 to $4000. This doesn't include labor to plant, grow & maintain. I have 3 other mats about the same size and 6 other smaller mats still recovering from the big freeze 2-3 years ago.



If winter freeze & next years spring flooding doesn't kill too many of the nanas, I expects at least 5 bunches again on this mat. I do see 3 of this years pstems in this mat (not included in count) did put out new leaves but since died, I think from flooding ????.

In the Small Nana Patch this morning I found Bud #7, a Dwf Orinoco; and I foliar sprayed the patch






The Small Patch total is now 7 Buds/bunches. I'm half way to matching last years Bunch count.

Bud/Bunch #9 in the Small nana patch. It is hard to see can you find it????





This shows how easy it is to miss seeing a new bunch until the red bud is fully out.

Last Wednesday (9/9/2020) I found 2 new buds on the Blue Java mats. These were not expected.


Blue Java pic1 (9/9/2020)



Blue Java pic2 ... this one is hard to see. The bud is still warped inside the flag leaf.







On Monday (9/14} the Blue Java bud of pic 2 has pushed out of the Flag leaf is showing.





I also found a Dwf Brazilian has flowered. This is the first for this mat planted about3 years ago.






There is only about 60 growing days left in this season. So I don't expect these to develop eatable nanas. But we'll see what happens.
