Musa Little Prince

Post by musa_monkey » Sat Sep 11, 2010 1:01 pm

This Randy Salter introduction occurred as a mutation of Musa 'Novak'. Musa 'Little Prince' grows to a maximum of 2 1/2 ft tall. A super dwarf with green leaves that are heavily flecked with red when exposed to sun light.

Definately a cav of sorts. It is the standard 'multiple names' to sell more plants :roll: Looks like a nice nana though :wink:
Best regards

Its a hybrid, and a very small one, patented in the US.
Definately some Cav in there though.

Oh, if patented it can't be just another name then. Maybe one for me to look out for as I lost ALL my Super Dwarf Cavs last winter and spring

A couple of months on from when i obtained this little musa and i have to say i am very impressed with it as a houseplant.

It was in amongst several lasciocarpa's for a while all of which suffered Red Spider Mite
but for some reason they left this one alone?
Its already pushing out no less than four pups, here's a new picture.

Looks great Alan.The one good thing about the cavendish family is they always send out loads of pups.
