Congrats Johnny!

Looks much better than the 2 VC I just left bunchless tonight.

Be sure to prune the bottom hands.

Why do you prune the bottom hands? Is it so the others ripen faster?

Mark I copied this from another site explaining the reason...............>

"Some people break off the "bell" (the bunch of purple flower petals at the end) about 15 cm below the last female hand. That way the banana plant puts its energy and reserves into growing big bananas, and not into growing a long stalk. (Commercial banana growers also remove some of the bottom female hands, so the remaining bananas grow bigger.)"

Thanks,Johnny

Thank you! That's why I thought they did it. Good to know. I am probably still a year off from a flower on mine.
