I just wanted to share and I am so excited I may actually have a banana tree produce as it has developed a heart flower.
Since my phone does not wish to transfer the picture and literally died trying I am going to post what this looks like from another picture just so people know. It is the purple and green pod that is hanging down.
I am sharing because people said it wasn't possible. Hopefully I get fruit. If it produces that pod will open a petal at a time and produce a clump of bananas under the petal. Unfortunately, once it produces the "mother" plant dies but there are many babies left to continue production due to the underground nexus called the corm.
