I was told that is how you know if you have a Basjoo at all, is by the signature red vein.


Now I am more confused than ever!


I had a red vein on the leaves of Matt's Basjoo too, but they disappeared once I put the plant in the garden.


Very strange!

Hi Sherry,
Thank you very much for your welcome!
I have just posted in in 'Main Banana Discussion' my speculation, that the red veins in the M. Basjoo may only appear in young leaves and may become more visible, when backlit (see my picture).

Unfortunately there is no way for me to check this out until May or June, unless it shows up in the wee pup I am trying to raise indoors.

Best,
Olaf

Wink Re: Growing 'Musa Basjoo' in London, Ontario, Canada...

Hi Olaf!


What a very pleasant surprise to see you on banana org as well! I sure hope you stick around and particiapate. I think you will find the members here, very friendly & knowledgeable.


Thanks for that little bit about Basjoo's and the red vein on their leaves. Funny because my young Basjoo has the red vein but my older one doesn't. I've since been told that this is perfectly normal however, so I'm not as concerned about it now.


I noticed you've posted some pics, Olaf.


I'll check them out now...

Joy Re: Growing 'Musa Basjoo' in London, Ontario, Canada...

Before the ground was even frozen, snow fell.


My Basjoo's currently have roughly 6 feet of snow on top of them or more...where it's been piled high from the plow.


They are well insulated and I bet they return next year, now more than ever!

When should I be looking for sprouts? I'm anxious to see if the two Basjoo root systems survived the winter.


Fingers crossed!

Thumbs up Re: Growing 'Musa Basjoo' in London, Ontario, Canada...

Ok that makes me feel better, knowing it was only a short time ago that yours surfaced. My one Basjoo was buried a whole foot deeper last year than it was in the pot it came out of, so it might take longer to come up. Hoping soon...


Looking forward to seeing your shots, Will.


Congrats on yours coming up!
