Default Re: Musa Thomsonii

M. cheesmani did pretty well last year (but not starting out so well this year). I think M. thomsonii does better in partial shade here, so I have to find a spot where the afternoon sun won't hit it too hard. I also think that the corm was significantly damaged as a young corm, and has never fully recovered. Perhaps the new pup will show more vigor. At least the poor thing is still alive, that much is still a miracle to me. You should have seen it in December of '05. One small yellow leaf on a pseudostem with the diameter of about 1/2 the size of a pencil.
