Drummer "10,000 ways”

“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”
― Thomas A. Edison

“There are three kinds of men.
The ones that learn by readin’.
The few who learn by observation.
The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.”
― Will Rogers

Veinte Cohol

is an interesting plant and much can be learnt by experimenting with this cultivar.

It's a very sensitive plant, so many outside influences will be magnified.

- corm size -

Size does matter.

Starting with a large or very large corm is a common rookie mistake,

unless your goal is to use it to grow the ratoon or for propagation. .

I've observed at a certain size and larger that the plant produces smaller bunches*.

I've also observed at a certain size the plant/main pseudostem would die.

- sunlight -

Full sunlight recommended

Partial sunlight - small bunches*.

Note for Myth Believers - the mat/pups are not a multidirectional conduit of nutrients,

i.e., leaves of the ratoon that block sunlight will negatively affect the mother plant.

- suckers

- plant size height

I've observed 8' & 9' plants that produced small bunches*.

- plant size girth

- mat size

- ratoon crop

- indoor Winter care

Please share your successes that won't or will work.

-Any Cultivar-

* small bunches - not worth harvesting
