Please change my "a few" on Musa 'Kandarian' and Musa 'Ebun Musak' to 4 each. Also, add 4 each of Musa 'Glui Kai' and Musa 'High Color Mini'.

What does the CVT behind some of the cultivar names signify?

Thanks, Richard, your handling of this is greatly appreciated.

Harvey

Richard,
However these fit into the order is fine. I realize that we can only order trays split up only so much, so if some of these can't be ordered, it's okay with me. If I need to order more a certain variety to balance the order, just let me know.
Thank you for doing this.

Scot,

I have some M. mannii I could spare if you can't order any.

By the way, I'm heading out to Vegas this Friday.

I just spoke to my sales rep about my order that ships today and I asked her about Raja Puri. She said there expected to be available in April but if I was wanting them I should prebook them now because they are expected to go quick.

Thanks. Yeah, I found in this catalog (warming: 9MB) http://www.agristarts.com/ASCAT09.pdf that it stands for "certified virus tested". Makes me feel all warm and cozy!

If you need someone to "bat clean up" and up the totals on some of these, let me know. They don't split liners less than 4 ways, so you need 18 of each kind, or 36, or 54, or 72. I'd be happy to up the totals on some of these to bring them up to 18 to help out so people can get the ones they want.

I know that i would be interested in some...but my method might be to wait until it all pans out and then throw myself on a few. I could be the person who makes the number go from 17 to 18 or 30 to 32, whatever.

Reading this thread for the 1st time?

We are putting together an order of tissue culture plants from AgriStarts.
  1. Choose plants from the AgriStarts list: http://www.agristarts.com/avail.htm
  2. Reply to this thread to indicate what plants you want
  3. The order will be placed sometime in March
  4. You will only be charged actual cost of your plants + your share of actual shipping costs
  5. No payment required until I receive the plants from AgriStarts. I will provide you with an online payment system -- or you can mail me a check, pay in person, etc.
  6. Our final order must be in full flats (72 per flat). Flats can contain a mixture to some extent, but a flat of singletons is not going to make it. Quantities of 3, 4, 6, 8, and 9 are encouraged.

A tally of requests is available here (does not "track" visitors):
Agri-Starts order for Bananas.org members, March 2009

Thanks again Richard, (you knew this would happen right? ). Could I add some high color minis to my request? Up to 9 if that will help make enough to fill requirements for order. Less if any one else wants a couple, completely flexible on this. Thanks , Bob

WOW!!! Great Job!!
Let me ask a question.. On the other co-op you could have a mixed flat
18-18-18-18 or 24-24-24 with an additional charge of $18 per flat.. Is that the case here as well? AND is it alright to order just a few.. I think I have already bought about 120 plants over there BUT being the plant HO I am it is hard to pass up a deal..LMAO!!!
