Default What the going rate on...

..the rare Black Orinoco?


LOL... You gotta love Lowes sometimes. I was just looking and saw the black and waxy pstem. The drooped leaves made it easy to ask for a discount and I got half off.

Not exactly sure what type it is.
Here are some other photos.






Not sure what black banana has been been TC'd lately that Lowes would have access to.

Any ideas out there?

was that the only banana with that pigmentation in the store??? maybe they have others and someone pulled out the sign and mis placed it. go check and see if there are any more like that.. is there another lowes in your city that you could visit??? do some more checking it may help answer your question.

I frequent Lowes and Home Depot for work every week(sometimes 3 trips a day..ugh). We have 4 Lowes, 2 HD. I check out the garden area every few days to see what they have. Thats why the black one caught my eye. I have not inspected every banana plant at every Lowes, but of all I have seen, none were like this one.

You've got to love it, who knows who their buyers are but I'm sure they all know who the major suppliers are. Sometimes an educated consumer can do well. Just not in Jersey it seems.
(and I still liked porkpi) !!!

Default Re: What the going rate on...

or and this imo could be any of these things?

1) the provider of the TC plantlets, could have just gotten the order wrong
2) when the plantlets got delivered they were out of the little tray slots....and if any of you have purchased TC plants, some will be out of the little slots :P
3) the employee putting the labels on was lazy and just put them fast just to finish the job :P

Ok this is just my opinion so dont beat me up!!! :P

We had our Orinocos turn black last year like that, this summer our last one alive is green again!
Our Orinoco came from Jarred when he had one of this clean up the Orinoco mat sales!

It does look a bit like your orinoco.
It has doubled in size in the 6 weeks it has been in the ground. Its now at least 10' tall.






Pretty black and velvety with wax(?).

This is a tough plant. The leaves were broken at least 6 weeks ago and are still green.

Hi.

Looks just like my Thai black. Notice the angle of the leaves and how they look like paddles stuck on the trunk. Mine has a very narrow and upright profile, and it is about 10 ft tall too with no sign of any pups. I bought it from Hirt's Garden (ebay) last winter.

My cheeka and iholene red came from Home Depot and my bordelon and zebrina came from Lowes week before last here in Mobile.

Russell
