Wink Re: Musa Ornata Bloom!!!



Hi Raules,
Your musa ornata are stunning !

Did you brought seeds from rarepalmseeds.com ???

Like you, I had brought shiny black seeds labelled as musa siamensis 2 & 3 years ago, from rarepalmseeds.com, but these plants turned to been musa ornata, with my one musa siamensis had produced the pink flower, so I studied the flowers & leaves and realised all seeds of musa siamensis I brought were all musa ornata.

You can have a look at my photoes of musa ornata.

Cheers

Clinton.

All hello! A plant in height of one meter, fifty centimeters. To it about two years. Without pollination, fruits fall down. Seeds bought in our Russian shop. I will hold all in updating.

Way awesome! I don't know why, but it gives me a really good feeling to know this plant is blooming in Russia. It's a lonely soldier conquering a new frontier, the gardens of Russia...

Hi Andrei,

This looks very much like the banana which I acquired recently in Vietnam (See: I Think I Scored a Coup) and which was here tentatively identified as Musa Ornata.

My questions are, How high is the tip of the flower? And how long did it take from pup to flower? The ones I saw (3), were all under 1.2 m from ground to flower tip.

I looked up Irkutsk and am quite amazed, that on the 52nd Parallel in the middle of the continent you still are in a 8 hardiness zone. I would have expected much harsher winters, just by looking at the map
Best,
Olaf

Hi Olaf! A plant in height of 1,50 m. The plant from a seed, to it about 2th years grows. Before landing in a ground, it grew in a pot, approximately 1,5 years. A beautiful version. Olaf, you correctly thought. At us sharp and cold winters. There is a temperature falls to-40 degrees and more low. A greenhouse with heating. During winter time temperature in it of +12+15 degrees. Plants feel very well. Ken, most likely seeds won't be, I this time didn't make pollination. Best regards all!

Congratulations, as growing those in such a hostile environment, even in a greenhouse is difficult. You have really excelled Raules. Thank you for the beautiful pictures.

Thank you, Raul, you really added new excitement to my anticipation toward my own plant, although my mother plant has not grown at all, since I planted it 2 weeks ago and the baby has only pushed the stem 5 or 6 mm higher. Both look firm and healthy though.

I notice in your picture three little bananas. They look about the same as the ones I have seen in that park in Vietnam and as are also visible in my pictures of them. What got me was that 3 of the 4 plants I saw there where blooming and they did not look like they were transferred just for the bloom from elsewhere. Are they flowering that much? Let us know how long the flowering period of yours last. Maybe it is hermaphrodite and will produce seeds?

I for one am looking forward to hearing more from you.
BTW great shot of a beautiful flower.

Best,
Olaf

All hello! One more here starts to blossom Musa Ornata. It pseudostem about 1,2 meters. 30 liters grow in a pot. Olaf, other bananas growing with a blossoming plant it too Musa ornata. I will try to make pollination of the second plant. The first plant most likely will make fruit without seeds, I didn't pollinate them.

Hi Andrei,

how big is your container? I have two ornatas and like to get a feeling for the size of container required to bring them to maturity

Thanks,
Olaf
