start this thread out with a song. or two. johnny cash; folsom prison blues. er more or less

I hear fedex a comin
its rollin round the bend
they aint seen sunshine....since....I don't know when
I have been sittin on this here porch here
and time keeps draggin on
but fedex is a comin
and their comin home

nother one. you will know it.

there is a yard in middleburg
they call the rising sun
I plant bananas
oh yes bananas...just to have some fun

oh mother tell your children
not to do the things I've done
don't plant bananas no not bananas...just to have some fun :ha:

OK so well.........when tytaylor came on the org and said he was selling tc's, to be more specific fe'i aiuri tc's. and they were not available in the U.S. and they might be difficult to grow and not exactly sure what zones they would survive in...........well........... given the fact that my thumb is more grease than green...........I decided to by two. :bungejumpnaner: got them Monday. usps not fedex :ha:

so if you would buy some tc's from him.......he's got other varieties....... here is what to expect. I beleive



I opened the box up and.......
OMG did I void the warrantee :ha: it says at the top; READ THIS BEFORE UNBOXING. ..........well anyways the first thing I see is this, detailed instuctions on the care for your tc's. :08: so being the man I am I put it to the side. now the water mark in the center is not water, its a banana leaf. next thing I see is this;



let me tell you here and now do NOT bring out yu old steak knife that has never seen a sharpener or your dollar store shears! these babies are well put to bed safe.



one out one to go.





according to the instructions and a previous email with ty [I was forwarned]. I could not find the burpee seed starter or cactus mix so I got the burpee growing mix. now what is not in this picture is where it says for CONTAINER PLANTS and raised bed gardening. I have previously been using jungle growth potting soil but after it went up in price I started to have problems so I wanted to try something else.



burpee is on the left, jungle growth on the right. I have been noticing sand in the jungle growth lately........... my problem?...........DEFINITELY ..............A CONFIDENCE BOOSTER



all potted up. I didn't take a pic of the roots. I want to get them in soil as fast as I can to avoid any root damage. the roots were starting to get root bound, healthy. 6 inch pots, couldn't go any smaller, we have cats. 30 to 50 percent perlite just as the instructions said. ha, you thought I didn't read them. this is closer to 50 percent.



less than 48 hours after potting; the cigar leaf is rolling out. today, Thursday the leaf has almost fully rolled out. I might've not gotten to much grease on them. from my thumb.

:birthdaynana: if yu go to bananapups.com ty has more than tc's to sell.......many varieties............depending on availability as understand.

beautiful plants ty; packaged with heart.....................................thank you

Thank you Beam!

They arrived great! Just drink your v8 and they will look straight haha. I hope they grow great for you. Not sure how many millions of musa I have shipped (feels like it) but as you can see I use a lot of tape! A lot! I’m sure 90% of the recipients curse me removing it all! But it’s so important to keep those 4” pots or corms if pups very very secure! You want 0 movement! None! So if you goto ship a Musa corm anywnere!!! First clean all soil off and trim roots back! Then mix 1 part bleach to 3 parts water and let it sit in it for 10 minutes! Rinse it off very well, seal it up and strap it down tight! If you do have a Musa problem the corm need to be peeled and boiled!

I’m impressed by Fei so far! The ones I’m keeping and the few I have left have really impressed me! They are growing insanely fast! No doubt in my mind 3-4 weeks from now I will have at least one in the ground! I still have quite a few Mysore - PC plants I’m selling. They came in the same shipment as the Fei. The Fei have blown them away! I will have to measure some and put it on my flikr. I will announce when I do.

Thanks again Beam!
And the website is brand new! So I still have a lot of work to do on it. I want it as a payment option and also as a Musa Info site! Where you can click on a variety and see my growing notes, height, cycle time, and cold hardiness all in one spot! I also want it where visitors can leave reviews on the variety and their comments about it. So lots of work to be done!

Everyone who got a Fei please keep me and the org informed on how it’s growing, etc. I’m curious to see how it grows in different environments.

Take care Beam,
Ty

your welcome ty.
I did the same thing for baker creek tc's. they sold out in a week. found out when I wanted to buy some more. you give great advice freely I figured I would do the same for you. :ha:

but the best part was the advice about the potting soil. worth what I paid for the tc's.
I knew I had a problem but didn't kno what. I had 6 dc's in pots I wanted to do a winter experiment with, well 12 days of freeze killed the experiment and the plants. a couple of days ago I dumped out the pots and found a ton of sand in the center of most of the pots. don't take pics dang it. but this was after buying the tc's and talking to you so it all came to light. seemed every time I watered [misting was/is the best thing that worked] they would go to town and then stop. made my watering times eradic and confusing. and was loosing tc's for no reason. before I couldn't kill em. thought it was me. it was I guess, not paying enough attention. my potting soil had changed up.

and I can see now it was also affecting my other plants that weren't tc's.

oh yes and I forgot. the second plant started to put out a new leaf last night.

I received my Fe’i about 3 weeks ago. Definitely impressed as to your packing! Not any leaf damage whatsoever. I potted it up taking in account the instructions, but sort of did it my own way... i placed it in my greenhouse and it’s started putting new leaves out. Then the strangest things started happening in my yard, I live in Oakland, CA, in what’s known as the Grand Lake District. A street person started entering my yard when it was apparent that no one was home, and moving plants around, releasing my chickens, fiddling with my watering system, etc. Well, the Fe’i got moved out of the greenhouse by this person and I had enough to deal with figuring out what changes had been done to my watering system so the Fe’i had been outside for a few days before I noticed it. It seems fine, so I’ve left it out. My yard is now locked and I put up surveillance cameras.

:2722: well it's been almost 4 weeks since I received these puppies. figured I would do an update.

each are putting out their second leaf. but the most notable thing is the growth of the p-stem. the smallest ones the p-stem has grown 3 inches and the largest has grown 2 inches. so far this new potting soil, the burpee, has far far surpassed the jungle growth for tc's. I am well pleased. thanks ty for the advice.

last week I repotted a fhia 17 that for 9 months has been doing nothing. she had one white root coming from the original root ball when it was sent to me. she seems to be responding.

I also got an fei from Ty. It looks very similar and mine pushed it's first leaf and is working on the second. Looks like a very cool little plant! I'm not expecting fruit but wanted to try a different type this year....

Re: bananapups.com, tytailors fe'i aiuri tc's
 
Thanks for the update guys! Mine and few for sale I have left are getting really big! I did plant one in the ground! Way too early of course but I couldn’t help it lmao. It got a little sunburn but is still pushing.

Keep the updates coming! I’m really impressed how well of a grower fei is. I am so thankful for the Hawaiian Musa collector that made this avaliable. I’m not going to say his name for his privacy. But I feel he hasn’t received the Thanks he deserves!

I can’t thank you enough! You seriously made my dream to grow fei here in TX come true!

You are completely right Ty bro! ....The Hawaiian Musa Collector hasn't received the appreciation that he deserves!....A very experienced Nana grower with a lot of knowledge!....A very awesome guy!....Also, I will respect his privacy too!....


Thank your so much Sir!......

Commercial organic potting mix. I buy various brands, but this one was likely from Costco and it’s a brand I’m not familiar with. It’s putting out it’s 3rd new leaf. Looks very happy.

Lookin' good! I like how the leaves are getting bigger! Are you giving it fertilizer already? I haven't given mine any yet. Recently I moved the pot more into the shade. It's been getting hot here in Central Texas! Now I wish I had bought 2 of them so I could have planted one at our 9B place on the coast!

Tytaylor77 06-06-2018 12:07 PM

Re: bananapups.com, tytailors fe'i aiuri tc's
 
Wooohooo! Glad your are going good too! Mine in larger parts are getting huge! I have some that are throwing pups! I’m sure it’s from the TC process! Anyone else have a “pup” come up? If i get a lot more throwing them I will send you another!

How is all the other stuff doing? Any hogs?

Mudturkle 06-06-2018 02:13 PM

Re: bananapups.com, tytailors fe'i aiuri tc's
 
Wow! You have pups already? Supposedly they don't pup very well. Like I said, maybe we have to take what we have read with a grain of salt. Have you been fertilizing them to cause that? Or do you think it is the larger pots, or both? I up-potted once to a 3 gal? pot. I've been trying to be very conservative with my treatment of it so far because of their reputation of being hard to grow. It sounds like maybe I can start being a little more aggressive with my water and fertilizer. I wanted to post a picture but it's been a while apparently I've forgotten how. I'll email you one. The hog hunting was a bust as the Forest Service had burned that area and chased all the game out. We very much enjoyed visiting with you and getting to see what you are doing with your bananas. Does it seem that your plan to grow them close together is working out? The last time I was at our place near Sargent (9B) all the bananas were taking off and looking good.

Thanks Mudturkle!.....I'm glad that yours is doing good/fine!.....No fertilizer!.....Fe'i Aiuri is currently in a semi shade location underneath of bigger Nanas!....Just waiting for her to get bigger, stronger, then to the ground!.....

Re: bananapups.com, tytailors fe'i aiuri tc's
 
Thanks!

No absolutely no fertilizer. I’ll take some pics of the pups and the one in the ground next time im out there with my tablet. I think the pups are from the TC process. A lot of times when I cut any culture plant there will be another tiny growth point with the little corm. Usually this second active growth point will come up in the pot early on. So it’s actually an offshoot already active and not activated by the main plant. It’s pretty cool. I won’t remove any until the plant is in ground and decent size!

The close planting (4’+/-) works so good for me. And I have plenty of room as you saw! They just grow better that way. Also remember I only allow 1 pstem per planting for most of the growing process! No pups! One plant gets all the space!
