Hey y’all! I had to take some time away from this app but I’m finally feeling ready to post again. Missing all of my awesome fellow garden nerds! 😃And look here, my banana tree is fruiting 😍🥰 #florida #9a #banana #fruittree

Glad to see that you've returned. Hope you're doing well. I have a question - is the red and white portion the flower or is the red part the flower and the white part where the bananas form.

Wonderful to have you back! 🥰 @gjones - I also have so many questions! Bananas grow in a spiral? What is that white pod? Are you standing below? Such a unique picture!

@gjones Hey! The red (leaves?) peel back to show several little flowers. The bananas are above the red purple flower thingy, in a few big bunches.

Thank you @KariSamuel 🥰🥰. The white/purple thing reveals a series of petals and little flowers. Yes the bananas grow like that! Cool huh? I’ve never had a banana tree produce so much and I’m curious to see where it goes. I guess all that compost gave her a boost. 🥰💚

@KariSamuel And yes, I was standing below. This fruit is happening on our big banana. An offshoot started growing a year or so ago and it’s pretty big now, too. I’ll try to get a closer shot of it. 😊

This #banana tree has been here for many years, but I’ve cut it all the way back a few times. Banana trees are just so common in #Florida! When this gets big, it shades my already too-shady yard a bit much, so it gets cut. But being here on #gardentags makes me want to let it grow, so we’ll see! 😍 #9a

@cyndi It hasn’t ever produced fruit, but that may be because I keep cutting it! I’m excited to see what happens when I let it grow. I’ve never even cared for it, really. They grow so easily. I wonder what will happen when I give it some love and nutrients! 😍

Thank you @cyndi It seems so obvious now, but yes, a tropical bed is exactly what I need right there! I planted a lot before I understood a lot, and this whole area needs to be changed anyway.

@cyndi For the longest time, I really didn’t like local plants. I wanted to create some English sort of garden here in Florida! But I’ve grown to absolutely LOVE native plants and it’s so much more fun to garden with plants that can live, and actually thrive, in our harsh summers!
