Default Pisang Klotek Contest!

Would you like to win a rare banana plant?
Mitchel (momoese) would like to pass along a very nice Pisang Klotek sword pup that will have a large piece of the mother corm attached to it.
It's a beautiful plant that grows what we believe will be dessert bananas.
All the plants in the US that we know of came from Mitchel by way of a guy in Hollywood that travels the world looking for crazy new things to bring back and sell or propagate at his nursery.
As it stands the only other plants that are in circulation are in the hands of Gabe and a nursery in Florida that Gabe gave a pup to.

This is the page in the wiki for the Pisang Klotek:
http://www.bananas.org/wiki/Musa_Pisang_Klotek

The stand is in a tight spot so to get enough of the mom's corm without killing it or the pup has been challenging so far, but the stand now has several plants and pups.

The stand on 6-01-07
The stand is growing new leaves again after being hit hard by the frost this past winter. All the pseudostems survived with no protection but all the leaves were lost.


...and back on 10-23-06


This is the actual pup that will be given away:



More pictures of the Pisang Klotek are here in this gallery album:
http://www.bananas.org/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=599

Shipping out of the country is not going to work for Mitchel or the pup so lets keep the contest to USA members only.

The shipping should be UPS or USPS Priority to make sure the pup is still alive when it gets where it's going.
Mitchel will ship it before receiving the payment, but he would like the winner to reimburse him for the shipping costs asap.
It will probably cost 10, maybe 20 bucks to ship it. If someone wants to pick it up in person that's fine too!

TO ENTER:

Guess the amount of edible banana fingers the bunch on my Goldfinger finally produces.
The plant:


the first hand of fingers:


The thread with the progress up till a couple days ago is here:
FHIA-01 Goldfinger blooming
Progress reports will now be made on this thread.
Each day a new bract opens to show another set, so the contest will not run for very long... we should know the winner somewhat soon.

Reply on this thread with the number you think it will produce, and I will add your name next to the number you pick.
The person who guesses the right number, or if the exact number was not chosen, the person who came the closest will win.
Only one entry per number, and one entry per member.
If there is a tie (if nobody picked the right number but two people picked the two surrounding numbers), the person who guessed the number LESS THAN the actual number will win, for example, if the bunch ripenes with 20 and there were guesses for 19 and another for 21, the person who guessed 19 will win!)
The contest is limited to the first 200 entries (if we even reach that many).

I've really got to "hand" it to you for this contest. There will be fifty-four delicious bananas at hand when handed down handily from the tree.

Just a little fyi, this plant came from Sri Lanka. Hopefully if enough people share the pups it will become a common plant. It's certainly one of my favorites because of the color in the leaves.

Sorry about not being able to ship out of the country but I'm worried the pup won't survive the long transit time.

I should also add that in the strange chance this pup turns variegated and odd looking like one of the other pups I had to remove I will send you another hopefully normal pup from the same stand and I'll pay for the shipping on that one.

I can't think of a better bunch of people to share this with and I hope it grows well for the winner!
