Default Possible Blue Java

That's what I ordered from that place named after the state south of Georgia and an area of raised earth, not quite a mountain....Yeah I read the thread. That was a doosie. Anyway I had no idea about them when I ordered it but alas I did and it came. The elusive and desirable Blue Java. It came as they all do from them in a triangular shipping box and taped up well. It was a fairly frail looking little thing but I stuck it right in the ground like it was my job. watered it and it really took off. I THINK I managed to post a pic of when it was planted and a pic today, exactly 1 month later. It's really taking off I think.

Now. After reading it appears that place (and others) sell you x and give you z. I know it's a little young but it does appear to be quite a different looking plant. I have some Gran Nains that I got from them last year and they look totally different but maybe they should.

Anyway take a look and let me know what you think. By the way I think there is some amazing talent and knowledge on this forum and am looking forward to hanging around. I have a decently established clump of bordelons, several gran nains, this new one whatever it may end up being, a juvenile ensete maurelii (came with ole blue), a struggling Gold Finger and Basjoo, both tissue cultures and a beast of nam wah pup I got last week from a local grower.

Cheers

I don't know if it will help, but my blue java pups have the same waxy look on the petioles, that is also on the fruit - that is what gives it the blue/gray/green appearance.

I'll post a pic tomorrow.

Does yours have that?

It does seem like that to me. It's maturing pretty quickly and every day looks more like what you're describing. My goodness maybe they got it right!!

Nice looking pup. At least you didn't get a TC plantlet. .... You set it deeper than it should be. The top of the corm should be at ground surface level so the corm and roots can breath.


As to what variety of banana you have, you'll just have to wait and see.

Thanks. I definitely am just a trial and error guy. Maybe I can carefully brush back the soil to "raise" it. What do you think? It seems to be rolling pretty good but if I can help it I will. Thank you for that information.
