All the best man on the seedlings and please DO keep us posted of their progress.
Tog, you are a funny guy! I'll get those all out to you right away.

Thanks. I'll get some pics soon, if I can ever remember to bring my camera to school. They look pretty much like any Musa seedling would now though, so no real point in taking pictures yet. I've got a serious spider mite and aphid problem in there right now that I am trying to get under control! Not to mention the damn fungus gnats...it's always something!

Joy Re: Musa Maclayi

Yo Frank,
2 questions;
1. How old are the seedlings from germination?
2. Where was your seed source?

Hey, you see, I can be serious too...

Funny thing about the 'naners here grown in the open, they hardly have any problems. I think it is their natural environment and things go right with little care. We don't even water our plants from day 1 when they are planted into the ground at the nursery. No fert at all and in the end, they give a decent bunch of fruits. SO, the quicker you send me your plants, the BETTER they fare
Gotcha Buddy! My comments are true and my questions are genuine.

Just had 2 M. maclayi seedlings germinate. I had 2 other seedlings but they dried out when I was in the hospital and couldn't get to them just after the first of the year.
I was happy to see them pop up this past weekend. I will take some pics later on.

One of our members traded them with me. I don't know if they would approve of my giving out of their name. If so, they will PM you.

Joy Re: Musa Maclayi

Ok, folks make way, I just joined Club Maclayi!

I got a bunch of the Musa maclayi subsp maclayi var erecta sds from dear ol' Christian a week plus ago. Our expert had them in his magic germn media and they came in moist. Being me, I still gave them a 3 day soak in a mildly acidic water and then in they went into the germ box. The 1st one popped after 7 days!

The temp was as usual, daytime 90F+ to low 100F, night time mid to low 80F. Normal moist seed mix was the media.

Nothing to do with me, I guess, they were already waking up when I got them and the tropical condition here just gave them the final wake up call! Why can't all bloody sds be like this!

Hey Tog,

Is this a new bunch of seeds that he has? He had said before that the seeds he had were var. maclayi, not var. erecta. He had narrowed it down to that variety because they were on the mainland, where var. erecta is endemic to Bougainville (and possibly the Solomons). Thanks,

Frank

I had two seedlings that croaked. But the good news is that 2 of the other 4 seeds germinated. So I have 2 of them growing now. They need to be transplanted soon.

Mate, maybe you should try some slightly acidic water like I did recently with the new batch of different sds I was germinating. Results have been very good.

Yeah right, like I have a chance here? Yours will put out a new leaf every day or two. Mine may take a week or more.

Frank: Yours are var. maclayi
Tog: Yours are var. erecta

I have both varieties, but did not receive them at the same time. I sent the freshest seeds I had at the time in the hope you would get the best results. (In your two cases it seemed to have worked! Yuppeee!! Congratulations again!)

Joy Re: Musa Maclayi

Thanks for clearing it up Christian. I didn't want to say anything on this as I had no idea you have the M-mac-ssp-mac-v-mac. There we go again talking in codes! Looks like I have to get the other from you too.

Fyi, the new sprout is coming very strongly and so far still 1 only. I guess 7 days is way too soon for the others to wake up. However, the earlier batch I got from you still shows no activity. Maybe I didn't soak them as you said they were already in your germination media.

var macchristiani ... Yeah, I might have that one. ;-)

Mark: Yours were var maclayi (in both cases) - same batch as Frank's. var maclayi is more cold tolerant then var erecta. Definitely more suitable for our climate here.
