Default Agri-starts..

There is a coop going on @ Daves .. The plants are coming from agi-starts.. If you are a member they have some great deals on Banana's as well as other things.. It would be cool if we could do something like that here in the future..
Just FYI!

Thanks Kylie, I suggested this some time ago and it died on the vine. Perhaps this post of yours will generate renewed interest.

I would check with chris (Rmplmnz) to see if any of his are up for sale as they are true specimans, just look at his photos.

It is still open to orders as of right now, they need more orders to make some of the 72 trays. They have lots of bananas (including the Siam Ruby) , alocasias, and colocasias

I logged in several times before, and I'm logged in now, but I can't find the forum/thread that this coop is in. Do you guys remember the heading for this thread is?

Thanks.

O.K., I can do this. Also, you won't need to pay me in advance. After the TC's arrive here, you can pay me online and I will ship them to you. You will only pay for the actual cost of your plants and your share of postal charges. I can ship a flat's worth anywhere in the U.S. by priority mail for $13.

TWO IMPORTANT THINGS:
1. Agri-Starts sells by the flat -- 72 TC's. They will allow a mixed flat, such as half one variety and half of another, and sometimes (rarely) a flat with 4 varieties. So if you want 1 of something and no one else does, we will not order it.
2. We can't order anything that is not on their availability list: http://www.agristarts.com/avail.htm

If you are still interested, please reply to this thread. I will start a tally and post it somewhere for all to view.

Thanks, for offering to head this up Richard. If there is enough demand, I'd be willing to go for a few each of 'Ebun Musak' and 'Kandarian'.

Harvey, how does the Kandarian do in our zone? I would be interested in some of them too.. And Siam Ruby. (About 12 of them) Basically I will probably help out others if demand is low

They look so good for tropical landscape infill bananas like truly tiny and Musa Beccarii. Not sure what demand is like on those though.
