I checked the roots of some plantings from earlier in the week and everything is progressing nicely.

I really have to admit that when it comes
to suspense and drama...your the BEST!
Can we see the whole plant rather than just the roooooooots?
For all we know, those could be the roots
of dw cavendish or basjoo.

Thank you!

Relax GB it's just a dwarf banana plant
No suspense or drama intended
The roooooooots are what's important
The ones I planted this week looked similar
to this Highgate - Dwarf Gros Michel
now For all you know, that could be a
dw cavendish.
