I know you have years invested in that Ice Cream, so I hope it recovers and brings you joy in the near future :^)

Sandy - so sorry to hear about the disaster when we were all so happy for you. It might be worth putting some props on the top of the pstem and the stem of the bunch to hold them in the best position in the faint hope that the centre of the plant is still ok and passing nutriants to the fruit. Also I would cut off the bud with the unopened flowers to ease the weight and strain on the whole plant. Good luck!

Oh...I'm so sorry to hear that! I know how excited you were about that bunch. Well, best thing you can do is to move on and hope for the best! It might be okay after all. If not, well, it's a shame, but I'm sure you can get another one to bud in the future. Best wishes, Sandy!

ouch, sorry. Maybe there's still a chance it will make some bananas, but at least all your plants survived. I wouldnt be surprised if one of the offspring flowers for you this summer. Hope everything comes back well!

Just saw this & I feel so bad. I hope there's a chance that the plant will be OK & nanas ripen. Look at the bright side gave us northerners some real hope of getting a potted nana to even produce a flower! Thank you for that
Got a lite?
