Yes.  But, I have another variety, dwarf Namwah. that tastes slightly sour.

 

An interesting fact about bananas is that the sap, which is colorless, produces a brown stain on clothes when it dries that is impossible to remove by conventional means such as laundry bleach.

Nepenthes is a genus of tropical carnivorous plants.  Insects are caught and digested in pitchers at the end of tendrils that are also used for climbing.  Here is an unidentified species shortly after I bought it at Home Depot, for $12.99, in 2018:

Here is its flower in 2020:

Recently, I rooted four cuttings and did an experiment in which I applied a gibberellic acid solution to developing pitchers.  The largest pitcher in the following was thus treated:

A relative of banana, Musella Lasiocarpa flower is 14 inches wide:

It took me 2.5 years to grow from a small plant.

I grew these clivia hybrids from small seedlings.  The company that I purchased them from said that the flower on the left would be red and the one on the right would be double. Years later, I find that I was ripped off.

I have an orchid (currently in bloom), a jade plant and I’m not sure what the large one is; but I do know it is 24 years old! It started as a small plant, among others, in a dish garden.

@Anonymous I almost forgot about this little guy who lives in one of my bathrooms. Also, I like to keep a little vase or two of fresh flowers on my kitchen windowsill.

@Anonymous Surprisingly, the orchid is STILL in bloom! I also have a yellow dahlia and pink begonia from Mother’s Day to plant outside.

@AARPRachelA I really like your plants, especially the climbing one and the air plant. No, I do not have the orchid in a planting medium. I just water it occasionally. 🌱
