Default Re: is this a flag ?

Time to break out the potash!
A good dose of potassium fertilizer will get the 'nannerlings off to a swift start.
I like to use a little [fast acting] water-soluble along with the granular slow release at this stage.
It'll will get things moving quickly before the winter weather slows growth (and fruit development) down to a crawl.
The nice thing about dwarf orinoco is that they can be used like a plantain when green; they make some of the best tostones I've had.
They're pretty tasty when ripe, too. They can even ripen on the stem without bursting.
