Character of Banana Trees


Banana tree is a plant that have a soft stems (not in the form of wood). Some types of banana trees produce fruit for consumption, while the others are not bearing fruit. The type that does not produce fruit usually used as ornamental plants.

Banana tree fruit producer has a unique condition, it will always grow a new shoot everytime it get cut. Cut it again, new shoot will grow again – it will continue untill the tree produce fruit.

The stems characters are weak and unyielding, two opposite sides in one tree. Maybe it inspires Chairil Anwar (Indonesian Author) wrote the words ‘sekali berarti, sudah itu mati’ (once it meant, it was already dead). Have a banana tree inspire us?

=========================Karakter Pohon Pisang=========================

Pohon pisang merupakan tanaman yang batangnya lunak (tidak berbentuk kayu).  Beberapa jenis pohon pisang menghasilkan buah untuk dikonsumsi, sedang beberapa lainnya tidak menghasilkan buah. Jenis yang tidak menghasilkan buah biasanya dijadikan tanaman hias.

Pohon pisang penghasil buah memiliki keunikan, meski ditebang tetap akan tumbuh tunas baru. Ditebang lagi, tunas baru tumbuh lagi – begitu terus sampai pohon tersebut menghasilkan buah.

Batang yang lemah dan karakter pantang menyerah, dua sisi yang berlawanan dalam satu pohon. Mungkin itu yang menginspirasi Chairil Anwar menuliskan kata-kata ‘sekali berarti, sudah itu mati’. Sudahkah pohon pisang menginspirasi kita?
