Re: First budding of my nanas

These were not started from pups but from a mail-order plant. I'd say about 9 months after planting it it flowered.

Re: First budding of my nanas

I heard the same somewhere too, that's why I cut it down to that height. Just wanted some affirmation.

Eventually when it does rot to be enough of an eyesore, i'll cut it down completely.

Re: First budding of my nanas

Question. Now that my main nana plant has fruited and been harvested, how far should I cut down the spent pstem? As of now I have it cut down to about 3 ft above ground.

Update 3-21-18

Been a little over 2 months since this bunch started. They're looking pretty plump.

Re: First budding of my nanas

That's just great.

Yeah, they're about the same height.

If they're not what I expected, I'll have to replant. Damn.

What's a good source for nana plants? I'd like a Pisang Ceylon.

As far as...

Re: First budding of my nanas

Yeah, the p-stem was about 10'.

The male flowers mostly drop of on this plant.

I love plantains either fried green (tostones) or over ripe (maduros). I Can't wait.

Sorry about your bad luck...

Re: First budding of my nanas

After the first few hands of bananas have developed well, the rest of them seem to be dropping off. Is this normal? Any reason why? Cooler weather maybe?
