Default Re: Guess how many I.C. fingers...Banana Poker!

I tried again just now to take pics but I gotta wait for petal to open more... too dark where nanas are... can't see em. I took a pic of flower & support yesterday & I put that in my gallery instead of photobucket, so go there to see it. I don't know how right off, to post from there.
I guess most ppl make supports out of pvc but I used 2 1X1's & cut the bottoms to points. I found an old duffle bag shoulder strap & attached each end to the top of 1x1's. They are adjustable to make longer or shorter. Push the bottoms into sides of pot or pound in ground on either side of plant. The strap has clips on both ends so you can just clip them to eyes or screws into top of sticks. Mine had a clip missing so I nailed & stapled it on top of stick. This is working excellent & it was easy!!
