When a tree is getting ready to push the bloom for the banana stem the Leafs grow really close together instead of being spread out and they twist around in a circle two interlocked to support the weight of the banana stem. We called the top a canopy because the banana tree is now stop producing leaves and getting ready to produce bananas.

This is the update on this plant with banana stem and Bloom on it now. So everyone that is new to banana plants can now see stages of growth and when a plant is getting ready to bear fruit.

I have a couple banana trees that look like that so I will have some pods also.  I just hope they have enough time before it gets cold 🤞🏼
