Default Re: container bananas 2022

lots of changes since the last update
i left the fhia 02 and matoke out quite late this year
brought them in about a week ago and i separated some pups and i will attempt to store the main stems dormant

here is the basjoo and possible musa thomsonii only a couple days ago

and earlier today

on sunday i drove around the beaches neighbourhood looking for tropicals and semi tropicals which had not been brought inside yet.. i ended up convincing a bunch of people to bring their plants in for the winter and also several people gifted me their plants
it was fun to talk to other people who were into growing !
i ended up with these banana plants which were some type of dwarf

i separated 1 pup but the rest i will try to store dormant
i also was gifted 4 ensete ventricosum maurelii (from 2 different people)
which i will attempt to store dormant

there were a bunch more houses with banana plants but no one answered the door which is unfortunate because that night there was a hard freeze
i also ended up bringing home a small bird of paradise and 3 clusters of palms

inside the containers are doing well... i just need to keep up with the watering and care..

the mystery seedling which i now think is ensete glaucum is looking waxy

this one stalled and then pushed a new leaf beside the other!

more updates soon... good to see the forum back up after several days of being down
