GAH! So many bananas flowering when you don't want them to, but such is life. All photos taken 10/23/17:


FHIA 1 blooming from a 14' p-stem (approximately). Definitely the tallest p-stem I've ever had on this variety. If this makes it, looks like it'll have a nice yield:


zoomed in a bit, same bunch:


Got front row seats to anther very big FHIA 1 bloom! Usually, they're so high up you can only view them from below, but in this case, you can walk right up to it:


Pretty darn big:



Here's my Ice Cream in full bloom mode, another one that you can walk up to and inspect:
