Musa Saba Growth Rate

Musa Saba in zone 7
Musa Sabas are one of the tallest growing banana plants that there is. They are fast growers with lots of heat. I got mine in early October 2010. Here it is through the years to give you an idea of the growth rate of these bananas in more northern climates...

October 17, 2011 (almost the end of the season)

April 21, 2012 (after spending about 4 1/2 months indoors)

Currently it stands at about 9 feet tall to the tallest leaf. It was only 1 foot tall when I bought it 19 months ago and as you can see it only grows fast during the really warm summer months.
