Our Banana Tree is doing Strips Tease

We have eaten a lot of banana before but didn't really know how it is formed. 

One morning Mamarazzi noticed a weird shaped leaf. Hmmm.... soooo round eh. 

One day later can see the reddish tip appearing.



Three days after that can see two "petals"  unfolded. Inside each "petal" there is a bunch of babies banana. So cuteeee~!


 Each day Mamarazzi peeked.  It's been a week and there are around 7 bunches of bananas unfolded. The 8th onwards started to look stunted. 

maybe it means that the male flowers is forming. A gardening friend taught Mamarazzi to cut off the "heart" once male flowers appear. 





 Maybe he mean this.  Now waiting and see if there will be more bananas before cutting off the "heart" .  Heard the heart can be use to for salad.




While waiting for the Banana Tree to finish doing strip tease,  Mamarazzi is also attempting to make Kombucha. The starter have a strange name called Scoby. Nothing to do with Scooby Doo. Will update you when there is more result. 


Meantime, if you are free, don't forget to drop by Bukit Jelutong Plant Exchange tomorrow morning  ya.

Now Mamarazzi is busy labelling the plants. We'll be bringing around 100 plants to be adopted.

See you there!
