Here is a small update for Sept 24
It has been pretty warm for the last few weeks. In the upper 80's low 90's and the plants are loving it!
The D cavendish just before it was planted at the end of May.

Hey guys, things have cooled right down here. Upper 40'sF daytime mid to low 30's at night outside. To my surprise all the bananas in the GH are working on new leaves slowly but it's noticeable.

Nov 6

It must be warm enough in there the papayas are starting to bounce back

I was wondering a few days ago how they are doing and if you still had your plants in the ground.

Hey everyone, all the bananas were dug up at the end of Dec. Sadly they all suffered cold damage so they had to be cut back. There were three holland papayas that were doing so well until December, couldn't believe that and then of course the cold took em out.
This is the dwarf cavendish that had the biggest stem.
All trimmed up and ready to go! 01/20/18

Something I haven't really shown is the dwarf red. It seriously needs a re pot but it's starting to look nice. This member sends some serious corms!

March 26
This afternoon I planned out where the Dwarf Red is going to be planted and started to dig the hole. How wide should the holes be??

Temps have been on the rise. It looks like the weather will be steady in the lower 70's this week. I hope to be planting by first week of April.

This years planting list

Dwarf Cavendish
Dwarf Red
Pisang Ceylon
Soon to be new additions this year.. Raja Puri & Grand nain
