Default Basjoos coming out to play.

I have had these guys for about 3 years now and had been using a hay cage to protect them but this last winter figured lets try an experiment and just piled about 6" of leafs around the base and see what happens. After last summer they were about 6' tall but died back to the ground. This is what they look like now after being uncovered for 2.5 weeks.

Cute little girl, but what you write about your basjoos does not really mean a whole lot, unless
you tell us, where you live or at least your hardiness zone; best both (dry desert or humid coast?).

I am in zone 8 in washington state about 20 miles north of seattle. We actually had a pretty hard winter around here with more days then normal of freezing. It just amazes me how quickly they have come back.

So you are relatively humid. That is west of the mountains and helps bananas.
Just 100 or so, miles east of you, you are in the Sonoran Desert

Maybe you can state something like that in your profile to the left of your post.
(Not the 'desert' bit)

Best,
Olaf
