I love this new potting mix! my aiuri's are throwing out a third leaf. the little one is growing faster than the big one. even my fhia-17 which I repotted about 3 weeks ago is looking much better. throwing out its second leaf. the response is 100 percent better.

the plants are not only getting sun hardened but also getting wind hardened by me carrying them in and out of the porch to the shade under the dogwood.

Wow!! So beautiful. Very majestic looking Musa! I can’t wait to see mine get that tall! It looks much thicker than other pictures I’ve seen! That there is a thick and strong plant! I love the look of it. It really looks like these smaller ones only all grown up! I love the colors also! Beautiful plant! Thanks for the pictures Hector and Alva!!

thanks hector for the pics. awesome creature.

mine have gained another 2 inches in the last month. I have lost count on how many leaves have come up since I acquired them. they both just put out a new leaf and another is coming up. the little one is still gaining on the large one. its got another 1/2 inch to go to catch up. fastest tc's I have grown. I forgot them and the sun caught up with them where I keep them in the morning. got I bit sunburned but it has not slowed the growth any.

happy 4th every one.

time fro an up date. so yall can see your progress.

mine are doing well despite a bug wanting to put holes in some leaves its gone now. they have made 15 and 16 inches p-stem height. still rather spindly looking. I figure to do a picture in November. I repotted to a 10 inch pot for the winter, figuring on planting them in the spring.

We had a fairly cool summer which kept my fe’i aiuri’s growth slow. We finally had warm weather in September and October. However, it’s cooled off again and a couple of weeks ago my fe’i showed some browning of its leaves, so it’s in the greenhouse now and looks like a new leaf has started again.

thanks I needed to up date this thread.

my plants have been doing very well, they are now in the dining room for the winter. most of it anyway. they went from 15 and 16 inches in September to 19 and 22 inches after repotting in a 10 inch pot. looking great.

on a side note I left them outside when the nights were in the lower 50's, taking a chance, and they did very well.

I left 6-7 in ground to see how they would handle winter/the frost! They didn’t handle it at all! All are looking very bad! Hahaha. I’ll be moving them in this week! So this confirms that Fei is very very sensitive to cold!!!

How is everyone's Fei looking now? Mine is kinda sad. First it was hot and dry, then it started raining everyday. When it was hot and dry I buried the pot in the ground so that it wouldn't dry out too much. Then when it started raining everyday I was busy and forgot about it until cold threatened and my wife reminded me to do some sort of winter protection. So I brought the pot in the house, but I noticed that it had gotten *too wet* and wasn't happy. So I repotted it into a bigger pot hoping it would let it dry out. All of the new material in the pot was *dry* and I resisted the urge to water. An old leaf died, but it was unrolling a new one, so I thought OK. But after the new leaf almost finished unrolling it started looking droopy. And I don't see a new leaf forming yet. I'm getting worried. How can I know if it needs water? Do I need to unpot it, check the roots, and maybe put it it a smaller pot? Help!

Mudturkle,



WOW!.....Your Fe'i Aiuri it's big!....I bet she got shocked!.......Let her recover!....Keep adding water to a minimum for now!.....Over watering it's one of the easiest way to kill a Nana plant!....


What medium/soil are you using?......I suggest you use a soilless medium!.....It will drain faster!......My favorite is pool filter silica coarse sand mix lots and lots of perlite for Nanas in pots!.....


Also, every time I transplant a Nana to a bigger or another pot, initially, I add water to remove any air pockets traps between the medium/soil.....Then I won't add water for a couple of days!....I always maintain Nanas in pots on the dryer side!.....




*****Over watering it's one of the easiest way to kill a Nana plant!*****




Hopefully it helps!.....

HI there

I also got one from Ty back in spring of this year. My plant has always been in an airpot when it was outdoors. I brought indoors back in mid October and it has been growing slow - averaging one leaf a month.....
