Oh yes, Zac...

It's definitely the same plant but since I put it in the ground it's been growing differently!

: o

Just recently, the red stripe appeared on the leaves but before that it was green. Weird, eh? I kind of like it, whatever it is...

I notice the stunning Black velvet rose geraniums are putting mine to shame........ : (
Are those the African daisies in front of the banana?
The banana........ Bonsai! Sorry had to say it Mrs. "small pot" Lady but it's looking vigorous and growing well.

Thanks, Zac!


Guess what?! Today I noticed a small banana leaf at the base of your plant...you know what that means, don't you?


: o


Yup, pups.


Furthermore, it's the very first pup I've ever had on any of my banana plants and it came from you, Zac! Thanks a bunch for being so kind to me back then when my stuff got stolen. You're a real sweetheart.


You too Bob, and even though I killed the Siam Ruby by accident (being the 'peel happy plant plucker' or whatever ridiculous name you called me ), I still appreciated the kind gesture.


I'll show a shot of the new pup tomorrow but it just looks like a twisty curled banana leaf coming out of the soil near the base. This is new for me, but I'm so excited to raise a pup for the 1st time.


Yes Bob, those are my hybrid African Daisy flowers, grown from seed. They bloom best on sunny days and the leaves are extremely fragrant. I like the look of flowers to cover the sometimes unsightly bases of banana plants. Here's an up close shot of the beautiful blooms...






I fertilize my Geraniums weekly without fail (and no, not with Miracle Grow! ) and immeditely remove the spent blooms, stem and all.


If they are cared for properly, they should never ever be without tons of blooms on them constantly, without any interruption, not even one day. I told you how to care for them and deadhead them.


More shots soon...

I agree, some flowers should always accompany the base of any nanner. In my bed, though, a succulent is spreading and while technically it's a weed, it makes a nice ground cover and keeps out the "grass" we use in Texas.

PUPS!!!

That's pretty cool. I knew that plant would be a good one when I found the mini pup growing while washing the corm to ship to ya; to bad the dog dug it up one too many times and killed it.

Oh that's a nice idea too, Zac - growing a succulent. I really love the look of the flowers around the bottom.

Of course I will send a pup back to you, if you lost yours. Wouldn't see you without, Zac.

Bob, you'll have to instruct me on how to do this. I imagine you'll say not to cut it off until the Fall, so we'll see...


Maybe there'll be more pups soon!

I wasn't expecting or asking for a replacement, and I'm running out of room for big plants anyways; another friend of yours would probably be a better destination. That being said, if you've no room for it and no one else wants it, I'd definitely rescue it.

As for shipping, it really doesn't matter when you ship or how, but bigger is always better. The size really only determines how quickly the corm will produce new roots and then begin putting out new leaves. That mini pup off yours (the size of a 25 cent piece; do you call those quarters in Canada too?) would have taken a month to come outa the ground, bob's maureli (about 1/2 a meter tall I think) took about 2 weeks for a leaf to come out.

Talking Re: Which kind is this?...

Well, I have a feeling that there'll be many others very soon anyway and plenty of pups to share.


Yup, we call a quarter a "quarter" but we have a gold coin instead of a dollar bill and it's called a "Loonie" because of the picture of the Loon on it - not because we're all looney!


Looks like this...




A few years later they replaced the two dollar bill with the gold and silver coin called the "Toonie" for obvious reasons but shows our good senses of humor.


It's actually a really beautiful coin and it's bigger than the Loonie.


Here it is...

HBL, wait and dont be in any rush to cut the pups off, the bigger roots they have the better. We're not in Hawaii where they can get away with cutting them all off. There would be a slightly different technique cutting the pups depending on if you're planning on overwintering the mother plant or not... if you're going to save it get a sharp spade and just cut straight down and work around each pup trying to get as many roots as you can. If not whack the mother to the ground with a sharp shovel or knife and get as much of the parent plants corm and roots with the pups you're saving. This will add vigor to the new plants.

Joy Re: Which kind is this?...

Well Zac, here it is today...


I'm sorry I didn't take a shot last evening just before I removed the leaves and dug it up out of my garden, but it was almost dark and there was no time to fool around...as they were calling for some serious frost last night.

It was one huge heavy stalk when I got it all cut back and out of the ground. As you can see by the pic, I left the pup intact, although it had some serious roots growing on it...





Last night when I hacked the top off, it was level, but today the new leaf I cut has already begun to push up...






Bob, what do you think???


Should I remove the pup or keep it intact, and do you think it's possible that the mother could produce a flower at some point next season, if I keep it alive and well?

I'll let Bob chime in, but I would leave it intact for the winter, Sherry. You can separate it when you put them in the ground in the spring.

Obviously you need all the help you can get... and then some but I'm not a shrink

Seriously , leave the pup on. It will strengthen the mother plant by staying attached to the corm and you can remove it in the spring when it would no doubt pup some more.

Hiya Re: Which kind is this?...

I'm definitely going to keep the pup intact...


but only because Howard said so!


The mother plant is already sending up new leaves!


I didn't cut very much of the p-stem when I brought it inside because I was kind of enjoying how tall it was getting. Hope it might produce a flower next year because it's already over a year old!


Finger's crossed...
