I don't think it will get as big since it will grow in a pot 6-7 months a year. Container growing always makes them smaller. I'll post pics as it's growing

Sorry Nana girl. Think how bad I'd feel if someone took #201!! When I picked 200 I thought it was way too high.

Misi Luki it is! I might be able to get one dug out this weekend, if not then for sure the following weekend. It has a few real nice sword pups on it. Hows the weather looking for shipping?

This week is cold-Wed Thurs high in 20's. Next Mon & Tues will be in 40's but I can't see Wed or Thurs yet.
7-Day Forecast for Latitude 43.09°N and Longitude 87.94°W (Elev. 686 ft)
This has been pretty accurate. Type in your city, state or zipcode for your local 7 day forecast.
If Wed & Thurs are decent, you could ship on Monday.

I've had the plant for 3 months now, & it is just starting to grow in the last 7 days or so!!!!! We've had a very cold spring & it just didn't want to wake up. I was worried. The top stayed the same but it was splitting at the base. So, after Harvey posted that his plant might be choking - and he cut the top, I figured that's what's happening, so I cut just over 1 inch off the top to let a new leaf out about 3 weeks ago. Here's a pic taken today. This all happened in about 7 days because of heat (FINALLY), rain & lightening storms.

Mitchel posted a pic here of how it looked when he sent it & that's how it stayed for about 3 months!
Thanks again Mitchel

It is twice as high - or more, as when I got it.
Mitchel, where did you post the pic of the pup just before you sent it? I just went thru every page here & can't find it. It was a beaut with a massive rootball.

It's bursting Bob. Pic taken exactly 5 weeks after last one. The lower leaf on right is the one just coming up in last pic. It has it's 6th leaf coming up since. Pstem is 26 inches.


I think it needs a bigger pot now.

Here ya go Patty. It's looking really nice!

BTW, the Pisang Klotek bunch from this contest is the one I'm eating right now and the one that will be on the the cover of B-Q #3. Tony aka Sunfish will be enjoying some as soon as his box arrives. Hopefully he'll chime in on the flavor. I've narrowed it down to a cross between Pineapple and Jolly Rancher Watermelon candy. I've never had another banana that tasted like these!

Thanks Mitchel. Just think how big it'd be if we had a better summer!
"cross between Pineapple and Jolly Rancher Watermelon candy"?? Oh my, I'm so envious!
I saw that pic you posted...good choice (by Lorax) to have it on the next cover.
