Only 2 hands
I've been gardening most of my life. But I'm new at trying to grow bananas. My first plant, which I've had for two years now, finally developed a flower. The problem is that after only the first two hands (9 fingers total) it seems to have already started producing what I'm pretty sure are either herm or male flowers. The weather where I am (Amercan Midwest) is still warm enough for this not to be the issue (70s to 90s), watering it enough, fertilizing correctly and in proper amounts. So, might this just be genetically programmed into the plant? Or is there some other reason it produced so little fruit? If it IS genetic, I don't know if I should bother growing the sucker this plant produced. Any help or suggestions would be wonderful. Thanks!
