Thanks. After all this plant has been thru, it really doesn't matter that this is good time for a flower. It's too fragile & big to take outside so it will stay in & under grow lite... don't want to take chances. Moving it thru a doorway might break the stem... it was tough getting it inside last fall.
Sandy, you gave me some hope when yours bloomed & you are in same zone!

It's a ice cream I got when it was 2 inch high TC in a 2 inch pot in late May/June of '06. Had it 4 years - this would be its 5th summer. Put it to sleep one winter & this past year, well.... if you read back you'll see what it went thru.
I wonder how big the nanas will be.. it's so funny looking at the little flower. I'll post more pics later but right now it's just coming out a little more from the flag. That flag leaf is only 5 inches long LOL. So cute!

LOL Deb Looks like I should have a contest huh? Was thinking of starting a new thread in main forum too. I'll take pics tomorrow -- the flower is starting to turn more burgundy color & turning south LOL.
I won a contest that Momo had last year (how many nanas) & I picked a pup he had choices of & paid postage. I'm hoping I can get postage paid for (I'm sorta unemployed) shipping a pup of Ice Cream or Double Mahoi. I never did a contest here so maybe I can ask Momo & Jarred how to get this going. What do ya think?
So far I have bets on 16, 20 & 32. Oh how fun!!!

OK, how's this. (merged to last post?) How's about I post in the 'Contest' forum to guess the # of nanas for a bet of 200 banana bucks & the winner takes all???!!!
Something different. All the 'losers' will have to donate 200 banana bucks to the winner!!
Just a thought
