Just a meaningless tid bit.....


Note the round semi bare spots from previous pot placement.
This happens after three days.

Most containers in this pic have been moved inside therefore the different colored spots in the grass.

The Ae Ae is looking good and has some size now. Why not ground plant it now and try for fruit. Even it doesn't make it till first frost you should have some pups to pot up.

I moved the plant to a 25 gal landscape container yesterday.
Your were right on about the roots being wound tight in the smaller container.
Tight and healthy but no obvious signs of pups.
With more heat and real sunlight I might just get a pup... we'll see.

all my stuff has been in the ground for almost 2 weeks, They are all sun burned and wind blown, The 25 MPH south winds have raised hell ......Not to mention the shock of being moved, another week or so and they will pull out of it. I planted all the big boys deep....they will be staying out this winter

cannasrus - I planted a 2-year sheltered pup a foot deep last summer, insulated it good (so I thought) and after the winter we had I'm thinking dry root this fall. There is nothing but a big hole. All my outside nanners have no signs of life this year. My biggest and oldest basjoo was total mush as far as I could dig. Good luck there.

Cool Re: Time to put the bananas outside for spring!

Well .....Apparently this plant does not have its sea legs yet.
Many of my plants (bananas) broke stems under this mornings heavy thunder storms.
I have noticed that many plants(banana) have to "harden off" before they are let loose outside Actually I thought this one was....but
Growing inside is a lot easier than outside..

Just let them hang. They will still do their job like it never happened. Cut off when they turn brown. Heavy winds cracked half of the PK mama leaves and she still produced a full bunch of fruit last year.

I am about half planted banana wise, about sixteen little and not so little basjoo shoots have finally emerged, last year this time they had been out for several weeks already. So far I've planted one of the large (the rattier one) maurellis and one of the glaucums along with one SDC and a couple of very small dwarf cavs, also a plant grown from seed that I originally thought and was labeled as Musa Acuminata Dwarf Cavendish (after then a years growth I'm nearly sure it's a Musa Sikkimensis). All my cannas and most of my alocasias are out. The first ones out saw 1c one night and 3 another, they're rough for sure but in a month they should be fully recovered.[IMG][/IMG]

Best wishes this planting season to all.

Regards
Harold

Looking good, they should take off soon with warm weather finally here. I still need to get everything planted, hopefully this weekend.
