Default Re: Need advise with Growing Musa variegated AE AE

my Ae Ae is doing surprisingly well i used a standard organic soil form HD and added 40% perlight to that makes a vary well draining mix i feed it with some mirclgrow every other week at 1/3 strength min is indoors under plant light it seems to like that allot i top dressed with 2 cups of used coffee grounds to keep the Ph acid and thats all iv got no rot and the leafs are quite nicely balinced blend of green and white i have noted the the Ph seems to directly affect the color of the leafs the more acid the brighter the green the more alcaline the darker the green almost a blue and the whites start to turn a butter color with higher Ph i have only had mine for less then 2 months so the long term i don't know I'm planing to add some manure in the spring and then again in the beginning of summer
