Default Hello! Newbie on board.

I've been following this forum and others since I started. growing some plants in the northeast. I want to thank everyone for your insight and knowledge on the Musa.

I started with 2 DC's and have since added a Siam Ruby.

With your help, I was able to quickly get rid of a plaque of Spider Mites. I went back to the greenhouse where I purchased that and found that a manager left and he was the only one licensed to spray. From now on I look more carefully. Even thought about taking a magnifying glass.

With your help, I have successfully removed and potted some pups from the DC.

Now I'm sure since mine are potted and it's overwintering time, I'll have some questions there too. I have them inside and I'm going to try and keep them going and not go the dormant route.

Thanks to all!
