Default Hello, pics of my naners.

Due to the climate here I grow all mine inside for ornamental purposes.

Here is my jungle room:


Pair of Truly Tinys and a pair of Variegated ones:


A 6 pack of mystery bananas:


My Ensete (older pic, it's very sick at the momen):


And check out this cool iridescent effect one of my zebrina pups is doing. Don't know if it's normal or permanent but it's cool:


Anyways, I've been lurking a long time and figure I'd post a hello.

Newfoundland. I'm not sure what zone I am in. Canada and the US use different zone systems that can't be converted it seems. Doesn't get too cold here but a lot of snow. I think I am going to try some Basjoo outside next summer, all the snow should act as a good blanket.

It certainly is!


Shelves from Costco. $125CAD.

Lights from amazon for $110CAD.

Add some zip ties and a cheap WiFi timer plug and you're set. The elephant I actually got from your neck of the woods, somewhere in the UK a few months ago.

All of your "zebrina" appear to be Cavendish.

The Zebrina I have has long leaves and appears to want to grow taller and slender, almost like the bordelons I have. Those plants actually look like my truly tinys did early on but have outgrown that (gorgeous) look.

Could very well be. I just looked through pictures and thought they matched the Blood Banana more than the Cavendish. They were only labelled as 'Musa'.

Those angles tell me they're definitely truly tiny but they don't look like the Zebrina I have.

No matter what they're gorgeous, healthy plants. Here are some shots of my zebrina

Default Re: Hello, pics of my naners.

The ones on the bottom left definitely look like Super Dwarf / Truly Tiny

Here are mine, Super Dwarf Cavendish on the left and Truly Tiny on the right.
Mine are a lot bigger (you can compare to the lounge chair right behind) but when smaller and younger they have wine stained leaves.
The Truly Tiny still has a little bit you can barely see.
Both of them have several pups that are hidden with all the leaves.

Some people say Super Dwarf Cavendish & Truly Tiny are the same thing, others say the real Truly Tiny is a Brazilian mutation.
Even if true chances are "Truly Tiny's" sold are actually re-labeled Super Dwarf Cavendish.
I'm growing both anyway
