Re: Musa I N G E N S 1st sprout in the netherlands!!
Only problem is that it requires crazy day/night temper fluctuations. I gave up on it because of those requirements.. Itinerans var. xishuangbannaensis is the one I'm looking for now. You still have to admire the ingens though... wish we had some drone footage of them or something
Growing: Ensete ventricosum 'maurelli', Musa balbisiana 'Thai Black', bordelon, basjoo, Dwarf Cavendish, Dwarf Orinoco, itinerans var. itinerans, lasiocarpa, orinoco (tall), saba, Siam Ruby, sikkimensis 'Red Tiger', TaNee, zebrina, and zebrina var. gran nain.
Seeking: Musa Itinerans var. xishuanbannaensis, French Red Plantain, Peekeli, and Ensete ventricosum.
