Ventura, I'm worked up over the fact that this site is about growing bananas and people that like to grow bananas, not trying to uncover some Nancy Drew Freekin' plot. You'all need to grow up and talk about plants. I love to garden and do well at it. After all you've said about me My offer still stands on helping you grow your bananas better in your particular climate. If you actually want to talk about bananas and how to improve your technique I can help you.

P.S. Floridahillnursery.com rocks.

I agree Musaburo. It also depends on the time of year you buy them, if you buy tc plants in August there is a chance that they will fry (so you will have to pot them up and get em stronger) but if you buy and plant outdoors in the spring you will get closer to a 100% survival ratio. So in closing Its the buyers growing experience and time of year that determines the survivability rate When comparing tc plants to established plants. For my money and growing experience I will take the TC plants all day long.

Does anybody know where I can get an Ae Ae (for less than an arm and a leg) Im dying to get one in my garden. TC cloners cant reproduce this one due to the variegation being lost in the cloning process. Not yet anyway...

Sikknoll, LOL dude where do you get you info from tissue culture is like a seed its planted then it grows when its big enough its sold the same way the other plants are. They spend a around a week in a clean environment then they are sprouted and grown in a regular greenhouse to term. Dude I really think you are mixing up your info from too many sources.

Here is some info from the guys that really know.

Plant Tissue Culture

Musaboro, RE; hydro, What type of media are you using coco coir. The reason I ask is that the coco Coir will adapt well to soil conditions when transplanted. If you water them in with the same nutrients you were using to feed them during the hydro process you should be fine. Just make sure its a diluted ratio as to stimulate new root growth.

Buellracing01, the biggest thing that isn't appreciated is lying about who you are. Your email address matches up with the owner of FloridaHillNursery.com and your IP address' location matches up with the location of the nursery (about 4.8 miles from it).

Are you ready to come clean and apologize for attempting to dupe the members of our community that you are not a "roofer" as your title states, but infact from the very nursery you claim to be merely a customer of? Or do you actually plan to continue your claims and parade?

Tally-hoe, Finally the admin shows his real face. What does it matter who's who here. what are we in the 30/'s who uses the word Dupe? Talk about bananas or can all you do is endorse people that pay for your endorsement and trash people that you don't. I mean lets get it out in the open. I'm hear to talk about bananas... Are you proud of the size of the banana bunch you are holding? LOL. Unless you want to talk about bananas I'm not interested in your Roderick. Keep your poison and snake oil to yourself.

You get what you pay for. With both of these sellers, you are getting TC plants and IMO are not particularly vigorous no matter what. Especially when they are grown in puny containers. It's just as bad if they have been there for months are are extremely root bound or still have a weak root system. In my experience, they require extra care and attention or else they can die on you.

If banana sellers would bother repotting these TC plants into band pots or 1 gallon and sell them for like 5 dollars more, then this would be so much better for survival rate than those tiny 2 inch or so pots.

With that said, I would still buy these TC plants because they're so cheap and worth the risk for me. I've lost many but I didn't pay that much for them either. There are more expensive sources and for quality, you get what you pay for.

Also, I'm not saying these vendors are bad people. I'm glad they are there to give us more choices to buy. They ship fast and I get my stuff. Wellspring even replaced a banana which I strongly believe was the wrong plant for free. So...

One more thing: I figured out growing them in a drip system (hydroponics) will perk them up really good and produce good root growth. But I'm not sure how they'll respond when you transfer them back to growing in soil...

You are not doing yourself any favors. How about an apology for being deceitful. If you are a good businessman you would save face and try to make amends with all the users you have insulted and who were/are potential customers. You could have used this forum ethically to generate business and even offer the forum users a discount like other users/businesses have. It matters who you are because if you can't tell the truth about yourself then why should we believe anything you say.

Bermy, unfortunately for him, he lost the opportunity to post an apology. He's no longer a member of our community. I exposed his false testimonials and gave him a clear opportunity to come clean about them and he spit in my face. I didn't report them to the FTC, though, but any of you guys/gals are more than welcome to.

Now he wants this thread removed, boo hoo. For all the times he dropped the name of his website into this thread, now he is probably afraid people will search for his site and find this thread ranking for the keyword, and people will see that he is a liar (as I pointed out) and thief (as natej740 pointed out).

This was the email I just got from him:
"Dear Admin you have released personal information about me on your site. This is in violation of Apmex/credit card rules and regulations let this serve as a cease and desist. I hereby insist you Remove any thread you may have created in regards to my personal information likeness or name hereby know as subsidiaries including but not limited to Floridahillnursery.com llc and its entities. Please let this serve as notice."

In addition to the above traits, you are obviously quite delusional, too, buellracing01.

Cry me a river! Good riddance to you! Go away.

I was enjoying lurking on this one and hoped he could have told me how to grow bananas in my climate as advertised. I've heard it can't be done!

Can't even begin to understand why someone would do this......?
Was very entertaining for the non growing season here though.
