Default Hello

I am a retired electrical engineer who has grown musa on and off for over 50 years, but, currently I only have basjoo, 'Truly Tiny' and 'Little Prince.' I have a lean to greenhouse. I enjoy experimenting. I build my own LED grow lights. I also experiment with growth regulators. I am trying to undwarf 'Truly Tiny' and 'Little Prince.' Here are some photos:

Lower left is Little prince treated with Thidiazuron (TDZ):

In case you are curious, the potting media is 1/3 parboiled rice hulls and 2/3 peat moss.
