Talking Musa Velutina SUCCESS!!!

Hello Ornamental Banana Lovers~!

Congrats! I was sorry not to be able to share a pup from mine when you came down that time...but you saw how mine was doing. The drought finally did it in last year but I have another one going now, thanks to a friend. The bananas on mine would never stay pink long. I had it close to a brick wall and I think the radiant heat from the wall may have had something to do with it. Hopefully yours will stay looking nice longer for you!

Very nice! My Velutina flowered last summer making it the first banana of mine to ever bloom! Unfortunately mine didnt survive the winter, I guess it was too young to handle that kind of cold even though it was a mild winter.
