Default I bought a foliage plant at Walmart

It was on the clearance rack. What is it? It's very short; it's supposed to be kept inside. Oh and it needs bright light and is a "mood booster". I will contact the vendor tomorrow: delrayplants.com But a search of their site for musa or banana (pot is marked musa) does not satisfy. No wine marks but is it a Dwarf Cavendish?





ETA: I did e-mail them and got an automated reply. Wanna bet they don't know what plant they sold? Happens a lot...at least to me...

I don't think it's a Cavendish. They have wine stains and red on the petioles.

Do seeded musas make pups? Are there any musas that don't flower at all? If you or anyone knows...

I know seeded ones still make pups...I imagine they all flower, plants reproduce, it's really all they do.

Kelley replied and says she's an SDC. I paid $4.34 (I think) and maybe tax; I'd have to check. There are others on the rack. Does anyone want me to go grab another?

I guess I'll go ahead and go clear the shelves tomorrow. If they're gone, I'll have pups at some point. I don't do paypal but we can figure this out I suspect.

They had 8 of the same ones in the W. Melbourne walmart on Palm bay road this afternoon... Some had wine stains, but few stains. They don't really look like Cavendish, but then again they really aren't, are they?

Mine doesn't look Cavendish either. But I'd already assumed either TT or SDC since the supplier is in FL so I was not surprised to be right. I honestly have no idea why they didn't play up the potential for fruiting and instead labeled them them foliage "mood" plants; with proper marketing they'd have sold out to collectors at full price I'd think. Or been snapped up by Floridians who can no longer send citrus plants to friends up north. So buy some for Yankee buds! But do tell them them might produce bananas.

I have a DC already. She pups up a storm; I've already give away 3 of her progeny which apparently take after mom in that they are exceedingly fertile. Let me know if you want a "mood boosting" plant. Many moons ago I grew other MB plants...but now I'm circumspect so I gots none.

PS Why didn't you stop by if you were up the street from me? Do I need to post a picture and prove I'm human?

I was once *this close* to submitting a huge order to them and stopped. Long before the Net with all the warnings but something seemed off so I didn't write the check. Yeah! I've had great plants from Michigan Bulb and those other "do not order from" places; my highly coveted black fig cost $3 in the 80s and her "figsticks" have pleased a lot of ficophiles. My current MO favorites are Artistic gardens (sample seed packs) and Simmons (brambles).

The Tallahassee WalMart (US 319 North) is about 20 mi from me. TyTy is 80 or 90 miles. I may go up to TyTy next spring to look at their nanas. ... Thanks ...
