Default Re: Price check 2 gallonish ensete V murellie

One thing you must keep in mind when buying plants it that price is regional!! What I mean is this, when I visit Naples/Ft. Myers Florida I can buy, (and did) bougainvillea in 2 gallon pots for $5. Those some Bougainvillea here where I live I can sell for $25-$35 easily. I have a friend in South Florida who beggs to bring a truckload of plants up here to sell because he can get several times more for them here than there. I have two ensente murelie that a friend bought for me when he visited sandy last summer. When I received then they were in 4" pot and were 2-3 feet tall. **Sandy, I have no idea how you get so much banana in so little pot space. I would love to know your method, I have a guess that you keep chopping the top back and maintain the root structure.** I transplanted them into 3gallon pots and maintained them all winter. They used very little water and look great right now. If you can afford the shipping Sandy is the way to go!
