    I was told that it is Musa Ornata??
    Mother plant was in a pot and in april, I divided the pups and planted the most strong looking one directly to the ground and the others to separate pots.

    While the ones in the pots grew vigorously, the grounded one stayed small. I thought that could be just because the pots may get more warmer than the ground, during early summer.

    Now see what happened.. Potted ones getting taller and bigger but our small lady decided to bloom. And I believe it is too early compared to the last years, when I had the blooms in September- October. I look forward to see how the others will behave.

    I've seen them bloom this early in the Southeastern US but I'm not sure how that compares with your climate.

    Speaking of which, in the Philippines we call a banana's inflorescence "puso ng saging" (the heart of the banana). And that inflorescence is quite a lovely one, with that pink colour.
