Don't worry about the contest Josh!! I just feel bad for you. The 'giver' always has the most fun and it got cut right out from under you!

But I want to know what it was!!

Good luck with school!

Oh, I'm so sorry! How disappointing for you. Good luck with school; our classes start Monday, and I'm just hoping the roads are navigable by then. Between flooding and falling trees, it's a mess out there.

Sorry 'bout your plants. They looked very nice.

Could you let us know what the plant was? I'm curious to know if my first hunch (but chosen already) was right. Thanks!

Sorry I haven't been on here in forever and a day. I just left my business a few months back and entered back into school taking 19 hours, 5/6 science courses... so I barely have even time to breath LOL. Honestly, I never knew what kind it was... the point of the contest, so that a panel of judges including jarred, that were good at identifying could tell me... and have a contest of it for fun. I do have a sister plant that's now about 12-14' with 8' leaves almost and I'm hoping it will flower soon. BUT, I don't know that this is the same var. as this is from a 25 gal pot that I got from the nursery with two seperate rescue plants in it (and their pups) so it could be a different one all together. I think it was ice cream though as the bananas were small (maybe 3-4'). When I get some time I'll post some pics on here of it before the fall. I have to find them. But you can see the day I got the banana in my gallery under "the great unknown."
