All of my 5 pups (sword) are firmly attached to Mama; this appears to be some distance away. Is spacing a barometer of pup type?

If you think about it, a pup not attached solidly to the corm would probably be weaker. Who knows? Fingers crossed it's a real pup...time will tell...

It seemed to start pupping when the base of the plant was exposed. Not saying anyone should try this, but its not a very big plant and has 3 pups now that I can see. I tried this with my 2 foot Musa velutina, and it is now producing a pup. Its starting the same way, looks like a root.

Here is the Musa Velutina that only has about a foot of pstem. I decided to use it for an experiment to see if uncovering the corm top would induce pups. This one was not there two weeks ago, and started forming after I uncovered it. You can tell its the same as the Basjoo pup, because the base is a bit triangular, and it has a bit of color in it, in this case a bit of purple but it doesn't show up good in the pic. I wouldn't try it on a plant growing out in the hot sun.

Howdy neighbor.

If your pups don't make it over winter, come on up to Jay this spring and dig one of mine. I have plenty.

I have a tiny weird looking pup on a foot tall Velutina too. I thought it was too small to pup... actually I just ordered it and it came like that.

I got a Bengal tiger sikki in the mail and it has 2 pups, and its only like 8 inches tall! lol. Must have something to do with the tissue culture.
