Musella lasiocarpa

Here's a photo of my Musella lasiocarpa. The container is 14" and the plan is about 3 ft. tall.
Anyone know if it'll bloom in this size container?

Nice looking plant. I have seen them bloom in a pot before. But with bananas the bigger the pot the better. My M. Lasiocarpa is in the ground and hasn't bloomed. It grew to about 6' last year.

Good luck,

Yes, it'll bloom in that size pot--mine did. By the way, the flowers last for a while!-- One of my favorite ornamental bananas-- and pretty cold hardy too.
