How precious is that?!!!!!

Cheryl do yours have that beautiful peachy pink when they are young and loose it as they get older? Frank says mine doesn't look right, so I don't really know what I have now.

A lot of pups have that pink-reddish color when they first emerge. Musa basjoo, M. velutina, M. yunnanensis, M. itinerans, M. velutina, and others do the same thing. What I haven't quite figured out is why some emerge with that color, and others emerge green. What I have noticed is that the ones that DO emerge with a reddish color tend to be very vigorous sword pups.

My M. dasycarpa mat (matte?) has flowered twice this year. For some reason, the little bananas never seem to last too long and I've never had mine split open. Mine tend to dry out and turn dark before that ever happens. Great little ornamental, though.

It rained yesterday, and I think that's when they started to burst open. I probably caught them the day after. They are indeed stunning! I had to take a few pics of them to share with you guys. My favorite banana!

Maybe provide the plants with more regular waterings. That may help you get some nice, plump pink bananas.


Cheryl: Your plants are looking great! Keep them growing as it cools down.
