Default a few pictures

Here are just a few quick pics of some of my plants, Im away from home right now so I cant get any new pics, but these were taken just a few weeks ago. However, they have grown quite a bit since then but until I get back this will have to do.

Thanks for posting! Also, interesting setup. What type of banana is in the 3rd picture? I saw one like that for sale this weekend but alas I was already buying too much. Are those all inside? And is that your place in CO or FL? Anyway, nice growing!

Very cool photos, Gabe.
I see an AE AE! Where did you get it?

They had Lasiocarpa at the local Home Depot recently, many of them with their yellow bloom and throwing a dozen or two pups.

What kelvin lamps do you use, and are they MH, HPS, or what?
You must have some electric bill.

Yes I do have Ae Ae (although I have a few more much rarer Musa plants and seeds), I got it for free from some really nice lady, I still dont know why exactly she wanted to do that, but Im sure happy about it! Its even larger then in that picture but as I said above much of the plants have grown a lot since these pictures. I actually was awarded a $1750 grant from my school district to get most of my stuff (including those lights and a few more plants), so I got those lights. They are actually High Output Flourescent with 8 3000K (i think) blue specturm lights, I was going to mix them with 6500K red's but the grow store where I got them suggested that I go with all blue since they are just suppplemental lights and Im not using them as full term lighting. If you want to look them up they are the Tek-Light T5-48 High Output Flourescent from Sunlight Suppy Company. The electric bill is not that bad (and Im only 16 so my parents pay it anyway, hahaha!), but if I had that much going with HID lighting then Id probly have a problem.

Just in case if anyone is curious, here is a list of what I currently have banana wise...

Plants that are in my collection...(in no particular order)
Musa muluensis
Musa rubinea
Musa yunnanensis
Musa basjoo
Musa coccinea
Musa siamensis
Musa beccarii
Musa mannii
Musa velutina
Musa cheesmani
Musa sikkimensis 'Red Tiger'-( I doubt there is any difference however)
Musa laterita
Musa hybrid 'Royal Purple'
Musa hybrid 'Lavendar Beauty'
Musa hybrid 'Milky Way'
Musa (sp?, hyb?) 'New Bhutan'
Musa 'Rose'
Musa 'Ae Ae'
Musa 'SDC'
Musella lasiocarpa
Ensete sp. 'Thai superbum'

When I get back from Florida I have waiting for me...
Musa 'African Red'
Musa 'California Gold'
Musa mannii x ?
Musa 'Gran Nain' x acuminata subsp. zebrina

Currently I'm trying seeds of...
Musa monticola
Musa ingens
Musa lawitiensis
Musa campestris var. lawasensis
Musa campestris var. limbangensis
Musa rubinea
Musa cheesmani
Musa sikkimensis 'Red Tiger'
Musa yunnanensis
Musa thomsonii
Musa itinerans var. gigantea
Musa nagensium
Musa beccarii
Musa textilis
Musa velutina
Musa laterita
Musa balbisiana
Musa 'New Bhutan'
Musa 'Royal Purple'
Ensete sp. aff. superbum 'Thai superbum'


And I think thats it : )

hey gabe15 you got it goin on! your only 16 you got more knowledge than most people. very cool. You look like you got plenty of stuff to keep you busy . well my question is if you ever get some extra pups of the AE AE could you trade or sell me one. I am dying to get one and i dont beleive in all the prices ebay sellls them for or also the websites. I am just looking for some cool people with good karma to deal with i am willing to pay just at a reduced price or trade if possible.if you dont have any right now i am willing to go on a waiting list.
