Default I'm gonna have a bloom soon on my ice cream again

I've got a pre-flag leaf.
I know "pre-flag?" But it's doing the same thing it did last year. It throws out a leaf that's about half the size, then another smaller one, then a flag, then a bloom. So maybe I'll have a bloom shortly!
This is on the same ice cream in the same pot that bloomed last year.


Sorry for the bad picture, but the sun was shining in my camera, and I was standing on a bench, and the leaf is about 5 feet over my head even standing on the bench. Hopefully you can see that the new leaf is rounded, blunt on the end, and only about 2 feet long.

Yep, it's a pup of the one that bloomed last year, in the same big pot. I didn't divide it or anything, it's a mini-mat of five large stalks in a large pot. It does look like next year I'll have to divide it though because it hasn't put out any new pups this year. I think basically it's a big root in a big pot. I'm sure I won't get many bananas because the plant is so overcrowded.

Great info here that having the larger mother corm allowed such fast growth and possibly flowering to the young pup. Please keep us posted , if that's the case it might be another important piece of the puzzle for us gardeners in the north to achieve some success.

Congrats Sandy!

This must be the year for Ice Creams LOL. Congrats Stumpy!
1aday, Sandy did get about 24 nanas but the heater went out in greenhouse & they sadly froze. I got a flower in June but had all male blossoms & no nanas. Then, couple weeks later, my other IC bloomed & now I have 18 nanas growing (in a pot outside)

Congrats!! Its blooming in a pot? Thats really impressive! Im putting my Ice cream banana in the ground next year because I want it to get some good height. Im hoping for blooms in 2 years from it. Yours looks like it will be starting to bloom in 2 weeks!! What do you do when winter comes? Do the fruit mind the change of environment when they go inside? Thanks for sharing. I love to see bananas fruiting up north because it gives me hope that my banana plants will fruit too one day!!
