I've got one just like it hanging in my patch at the moment. Second bunch for me. I think its an American GF which seems to have a pretty loose range of characteristics. The real deal has quite large banana fingers in addition to the heart shaped bud and the lifting of one petal at a time.

Nice bunch!

OK I guess I prematurely got too excited
I only got 1 hand of 10 + 1 finger by itself

Well to be fair it's the first flower for this mat and we're in a record breaking heat wave since May the entire time it's flowered (near 100F highs) so it probably didn't like it too much.

Still looking forward to enjoying my 11 bananas

Nice! what was the height? The one I got from you is rolling along and pumping out pups. I gave one to a neighbor but need to get it again soon.

Beauties. Not sure I'll get there this year even. I think Lou Ferrigno was just a freaky freak going from TC to fruit in just over a year.

Just a couple Namwa bunches. Five- six leaves per plant. LOL. I have a total of three all about the same size. Also have two Blue Javas, one American GF, and one Indian Hill. This is the earliest I have ever had this number of bunches hanging.

The month of May was very kind to me. 4 bunches, Dwarf Namwa, Tall Brazilian, FHIA 3 and an unknown that was supposed to be Praying Hand but is clearly not.


Dwarf Namwa




Brazilian




FHIA3




Mislabeled as Praying Hands

You have the hardest part done already with uploading the photos.
Now
Click the photo....and directly underneath the photo is says "code for bulliten boards" highlight the line of code that is to the right of those words and then copy and paste it in your post.....might take a few times ..go to your post and then click paste when your ready.

Another flower just starting to peek out from my 2nd Orinoco mat.
I didn't even notice that half-length surfboard flag leaf until now.
