Default My first banana - Musa rose

I got it yesterday in the mail. I bought it from in Germany.

It had 3 leaves on it, but 2 of them were broken off during transportation, so now it just looks rather weird with its one leaf hanging about.. It also has 2 small pups.

The stem is a bit blackened, but it feels sturdy enough. I had to support the stem a bit to prevent it tilting to the side with the leaf. Thats why there is strips around the stem.

Now I just wait for it to settle and start looking like a real banana

All comments are welcome!
