Thanks Dan! There are some raspberries that are coming through the fence and there's a fern in there too but no vegetables those are further down the fence to the right. I should take a pic of them!

Sure thing! Glad to see everything's coming along so well and yea it'd be great to get a closeup of those raspberries. They aren't grown here as far as I know, so it's like an exotic plant to me

I have no idea . these are volunteer plants from the neighbours that have come through the ground on our side. Look around at your garden shops? or maybe do a quick google search.

well it turns out my "Mysore" can't really be a Mysore. Not nearly enough red on the leaves/p-stem. looking more like Misi Luki- the plant is starting to get black spots on the p-stem>> does Misi Luki do that?

It's definitely a plus when the plants that pop up in your yard from the neighbour's bear fruit too lol. And I haven't ever seen them in any of the garden shops I frequent, but I did a google search (which is quite handy; thanks for the idea) and apparently they need at least a month of chill hours so I don't think they'll hold up here since we usually don't drop below the 60s in winter.

It wasn't a total loss though, since I found out figs, grapes and strawberries only need about a week, so I might be able to get away with growing those here. It'd definitely be cool to try those out

The link to the website I got the chill info from is below. I have no experience with gardening in frost areas so I don't know if it's accurate or not lol

I honestly would love for it too but maybe now that it pupped maybe much closer to fruiting? I hope It will cut back on the high being in a container. The only thing im curious about- The pup is totally pinkish/red right now you can see a bit starting in that pic I will post another I wanna make sure it really is an orinoco.

I can imagine you would lol. I'm sharing that same hopeful anticipation with one of my bananas that I first thought was an Orinoco but now am thinking is a Pisang Mas (Ladyfinger/Sucrier/Sugar/etc). It should bloom at a much shorter height in a container so hopefully it is closer to fruiting, and in some varieties puppage is an indicator of eminent flowering.

I'm not familiar enough with Orinoco to say whether or not its pups common show reddish coloring (if they do then they outgrow it) but that's definitely the case on my unconfirmed Ladyfinger so it does happen with some varieties. I look forward to the pic.

Oh it's REALLY red! lol I was originally thinking the other picture you posted was an up to date one.

It's actually a pretty little thing. And as you can see from its parent, it does eventually lose the green coloring, at least in the pseudostem. I still don't know whether this denotes the banana to be an Orinoco or non-Orinoco, but what a proud papa you must be!
