Default Hello

Hello Everyone,

I am a new tropical enthusiast from Maryland. I enjoy growing bananas, cold hardy palms, and other zone-defying plants. I currently have 12 or so bananas, all smaller than 3' for now as well as a musa ensete that is around the 5' mark growing like crazy indoors. I have learned lots lurking here for a year or so, and finally decided to post a brief introduction. With the extreme drought we had this summer, I was spending at least an hour a day watering. My bananas did not grow very well this year because of the 90-95 degree temps and low humidity we had, which is very uncharacteristic of this area. I'm going to be adding to my gallery soon.

Hello saltydad, looks like we live close to one another and share some of the same hobbies. I am also into marine aquariums, I have a 55 gallon one now that I am cycling with a yellowtail damsel and a hermit crab. I eventually plan on starting a 125 gallon reef aquarium in my basement as soon as I win the lottery LOL.

Marc, be sure to check out aquariumforum.com, run also by our very own Chief here, Jarred. A great place to learn, shmooze, show off your tanks, etc. Keep us posted on your tank(s) as they progress. Some pics would also be nice.

Hi Marc, jump right in, the water is warm.. Glad to have you participating and looking forward to seeing pics of your zone defying feats.

@saltydad, thanks for the plug, comrade. Some fun stuff in store for over there in the next months ahead, we'll have a routine tank of the month contest once we get the code out of the laboratory.

Hello and welcome! I know what you mean about "uncharacteristic" weather. We had floods then drought then floods. I was real surprised anything survived! Anyway, I'll def do some lurking and check out your aquarium[s]!
