My Banana plant is getting big!
This plant was maybe 6 feet tall when I got it this spring. It has more than doubled in size in just a few months and the color of the leaves is hard to beat. The elephant ears growing below it are a cultivator that I have been trying to find for years, I finally found them available at a local nursery for 5 dollars each as tiny plants. They aren't tiny anymore though. I love this time of the year because all the tropicals are really at their best.
Bonus pic of my Cucuzza squash growing uncontrollably fast. If you are looking for a beautiful vine that doubles as something you can use in the kitchen, a Cucuzza might be your plant!
As always, thanks for looking!
