Default My Florida Variegated

So i decided to grab a Florida variegated off of Etsy. Its a pup cut from the mom had decent roots and good chunk of corm. I potted it with kellog palm citrus and catus mix, which i use to amend my soil for my other bananas i plant in the ground. Put it in a spot where it will get mostly shade for now. Havenít decided if Iím planting in ground come sept or waiting till spring.

Congrats on your purchase.

Next time you want a banana plant you should consider getting it from a local member. Indonesia, Hawaii and other area outside the western hemisphere have nasty banana viruses.

Plus local shipping is much cheaper. I don't know what members current prices are but the variegated florida and a'ea'e were recently $5 each.

I would have loved to but i didn’t see any florida for sale at the time of purchase, i did look. Trusting someone from Indonesia to send a decent plant not exactly a risk i wanted to take but hopefully plant works out. Im new here so i must have missed the $5 ones.

I did just grab a dwarf namwah from a member here.

Its illegal to import Musa AEAE species. They're banned from international imports by the USDA. Was this a typo? You may want to amend your post.

Banana Plants For Sale & Auction - Bananas.org

When I was selling the variegated florida and a'ea'e here I was charging $15 each but when the prices dropped to $5 I had to switched from retail to wholesale. My farm is too far from a post office to be able to make a profit doing small orders. I always thought members deserved lower prices so I was very happy when the prices dropped.

This was the first year I saw TC cultivars for sale at the american box stores for $9.99. I doubt they'll ever try doing that again lmao. The sales tax alone would be $1.15 on each plant. People could just stop at a local farm and get pups for $0.25 tax free. From my driveway to the end of the street I pass by more than 50 different cultivars just growing wild by the side of the road.

Do you really think the US inspection officer would know the difference between those two plants.

I ended up taking the leaves off that it had when it shipped since they were wilting anyway. Been keeping it in mostly shade and will probably plant in the ground here shortly. Two new leaves and a third coming in. Seems to be doing very well.
