Default Musa Nono

Bought a fully rooted Musa Nono and it certainly had less roots than expected.

Surprised it looks good for a tiny root system. Curious to see how it grows for you.

I was expecting it to have roots and if it did I would have planted it in CCS.

This is the first tissue culture plantlet I've received that a third party did the transition from agar to a non-agar substrate. Normally a plantlet in agar is shipped in a little bag or test tube with an abundance of roots and the grower simply needs to rinse off the agar and acclimate a decent amount off the roots to have success.

Trusting the transition to a third party with their definition of "fully rooted" doesn't appear to have been a good decision on my part.

The photo below is of a tissue culture plantlet from USDA TARS that came in a little bag of agar. It was planted in CCS and quickly acclimated to full sun before the pseudostem reached the height of 3 quarters. The advantages of acclimating to full sun quickly is to avoid growing a long thin pseudostem that will fold in the slightest breeze and obviously it will grow faster with more sunlight.

I'm guessing it has survived in a high humidity environment.

Sounds about right and never saw one growing in moss either. Pretty sure I have never bought any type of plant growing in it. But it does hold moisture so that would explain itís growing conditions as you suggested.

How exciting! Was this also from Lydia? I purchased one and it came with few roots in spaghnum moss, I quickly moved it to Fluval.
