Banana Inflorescence Series



From the Tropical Fruit Photography Picture Archive, Tropical Research and Education Center, University of Florida
by Ian Maguire


"The series of banana images below were taken over 1 year ago here at the Tropical Research and Education Center. My technique was to mark a series of pseudostems within our 2 acre collection and photograph them every two days. The fast pace growth of the banana during the hot wet summer days appeared to occur almost hourly as the plant makes noticeably rapid transitions through its flowering period."
