Oh, almost forgot I Purchase 7 Different Elephant ear that should easily grow in my temperature zone.

Gotta Shout OUT for Sddarkman619: He Got me the GF and GM! They are Both Shooting out New Leaves like the rest of 'em! Thanks again.
My friend Randy Hooked me Up with the Basjoo for FREE!
And lastly Wellsprings Garden did me the other 5 nana babies.
I realize all these are Tissue Cultured specimens so By receiving these all within 3 months, I should be able to give a good report on how these grow and Compare the Heck out of 'em I already can't wait to test them!
By the way NC weather has been very promising the past couple of months, Winter is coming!
Taste Report coming soon. . . hmm well, maybe it might be awhile, it's August pffff. Wish Me luck and I WILL Do my Best to make Sure these Survive Winter and into Spring.

What? Duh! I will plant all 7 Different Naners and 7 Different Ears ALLLL around my sun-room and in-between those square bricks! It should be easy to take care of and maintain itself kinda sorta. Well, that's what I'm thinkin. I have owned a garden since I was in diapers so this should be child's play and fun, I like mud. Nanas are yummy and watering is easy.

No Ice-Cream from Wellspring nor Florida hill are Namwahs, in fact real Ice-Creams are pretty hard to find in the continental US. That's what he's saying Good luck on the collection though, love seeing more people from non-tropical areas growing bananas. I've got some bananas from both Wellspring and Florida Hill, and, I'm definitely not counting on the plants being all exactly as labeled, but, whatever they are I'll be happy. (though I will of course replace whatever I didn't get as claimed when the time comes)

Where in NC do you live? We live in wilmington a mile from Carolina Beach. I am able to winter Mysore,Saba,namwah,ice cream,tall an dwarf Orinoco,Cavendish,Siam Ruby,yellow,velutina,basjoo of course,black thai,VM,raja puri. Plants delight in Raleigh has others that I don't grow that survive way up there but they have to bundle there's up. Helen's hybrid and Siam ruby never have done too well as they don't like te heat. I second us having a bad spring and summer. Nowhere near as hot as normal and more rain then the past 15 years. The rest I grow I have never tested them and store in are greenhouse.

It's a real ice cream but not blue java. Right now it's at least 13ft high with several pups. Since are spring was so crappy I had to cut it back a few feet to wake it up. In your area just make sure you plant a week after the last frost date. This year I had two basjoo mats flower,dwarf Orinoco,velutina which always do.

Camera's plus audio Mic's have been working for 3 years now. All camera's record in High resolution BUT only show low quality through a internet stream so I can see my Shi...tufff anywhere anytime. juss waitin' around to watch sum1 get in my stuff or steal/poison my plants

got away with my Smallest Air compressor+ air-nailer, didN'T take paint gun or staple gun or hoses or even the nails to go with gun. Oh and they broke 1 frame out of our tool shed window. They managed to get away with a 10yo Troybilt tiller! Had to have a truck when they got me! I think who did this is in jail Now though, I did some research wif my crew if u-no-what-i-mean. I am 'right' now, and plan to stay that way.
