Joe, AMK is an abbreviation for Ang Mo Kio district in Singapore.

the address you asked for:

Ang Mo Kio Floral And Landscape
15 Ang Mo Kio Central 2 569664

however, they do not have a webpage and i do not think they do mail orders.

Many thanks anyway
Joe

I am interested in seeing what they will look like when they grow especially Anthuriums.<br /><br />I mostly sell my plants but I also like to trade them for specific plants that I think I dont have in volume or are not in my collection.<br /><br />

This is another variety of ornamental banana. This one has black trunks.

Will try to upload more photos of the different variety of ornamental bananas later. The green one on the upper left is the Drawf Variety. Center is the Variegated Type and below that is the Red Variety. Hope you like it.

Hi there,

Yes. Each growth of the banana that we call the 'banana tree' only flowers once as the inflorescence is produced terminally.

The plant continues its growth via the extension of the underground rhizome and subsequent sending up of new leafy shoots that flower and fruit in the same manner.

Hi Wilson,

thanks for the info. By the way, do we chop off the 'banana tree' after it flowers or do we leave it? If we choose to chop it, how do we differentiate between those that have already flowered and those who have yet to.

Thanks, WK
