One of our banana plants uprooted itself last week, prompting me to harvest the fruits from it earlier than I intended to. At that time, I noticed that it had already put out a new sucker, which I’m going to transplant elsewhere soon.
Well, “soon” hasn’t come yet, but I noticed today that there was already a second sucker that was starting to grow, too. New growth fascinates me, so of course I had to visit it with my camera.
There’s a third sucker starting to grow from the rootball of the previous plant (yes, it’s still lying there), and another possible sucker that looks like a brown, matted ball lying on the ground. I’m not sure if it’s new or old, but I’ll naturally put it where it will have a chance to grow, if it can.
If all of them grow, I’ll be able to start experimenting with banana circles, that I’ve heard are part of permaculture practice sooner than I expected.
