male flower

17 years ago

My banana plant, type unknown, produced an influorescence three months ago. The bananas are still very small despite much watering and feeding. I wait with bated breath to see what is lurking in the large male flower bud, but every day it is just another set of neutral flowers. I have seen some pix of actual male flowers on the forum, but relatively few. Do people cut them off for the energy to be directed more to the fruit? Will the flower help me identify the type of plant I have? Will it ever open? Will I be disappointed?
