Healthy looking pup. Is it the only one? Might look for one around here. We want to grow the plants that have a good chance of fruiting so we will get selective from now on. Our collection isn't too large but is growing. Gathered a batch from dreaminofthetropics and they will enjoy some TLC until the spring time. Thanks Kat

Michael, what happened to this CG I sold you? I see you're looking for another one now. Hope all is well...

I have a lot of big pups, maybe need to pull some off. I'm bad at putting that off.

I should have some available later this year. I have one potted up right now to get it a bit bigger before I offer it up. Normally, I'd just let it grow on the mother plant but this one was from some left over corm from last year's plant. It seemed to be struggling a bit so I decided to just dig it and pot it.

I see you are zone 8b how does that compare with zone 8 Willamette Valley Oregon ( Arbor Day says I am zone 9). I am interested in starting some cold hardy bananas outside, and I hope to get fruit. I have baby dragonfruit and edible hibiscus starts to trade if there is any interest.
