Here is an updated picture of my ''Brazilian Tall'' from October 29th!


As you can see,the pup of the pup took over and became this beauty! The original pup only produced a couple of tiny leafs and doesnt show any will to grow. I moved it to Pyrgos now where it awaits its ground planting in a few weeks!!!

It's looking pretty good for traveling the world and being potted! How is the PK doing?

The newest leaf is broken and burning from the sun as you can see as it was produced during its brief stay in my basement for a few weeks. We had a week of truly awful weather and i had to put it there to save its leafs from getting all trashed...Being in Pyrgos now,its should already be recovering!

The Pisang Klotek is doing ok but didnt grew in my basement at all. I moved it to Pyrgos the past weekend along with other bananas i have for ground planting but didnt take photos from that trip at all. I found a tunnel in its pseudostem surrounded by hard,black tissue which fortunately was limited to the outer leaf sheath. I removed the tunnel and the surrounding blackened tissue to be safe and hopefully it should be ok. It seems to be in good condition and hopefully it will improve even more during its stay in much warmer Pyrgos!

Thank you very much again for sending me these beauties! It will be a relief if all goes well with them and i ground plant them ok! From then on they should be worry free as my Kandrian is! I will drench them with insect pathogenic nematodes as well twice and should never see tunnels in them again!

Default Re: My "Pisang Klotek" and "Brazilian Tall"!!!

I finally found a spot and ground planted my ''Brazilian Tall'' at my Pyrgos garden,at the end of June! Here is is right after ground planting!


Its not in the best possible condition as its dripper clogged and got negligible water once a week for 2 weeks,while potted,in the high heat of the summer! Soil was bone dry and probably has been like that for much more than a week! It actually held up pretty well to the scorching sun and the summer heat with no water! Now thats its ground planted it will hopefully grow over it in no time!


To update on my Pisang Klotek as well,its officially dead unfortunately due to rot very early in the spring. I finally got to inspect its pot and there was nothing left of it but dead,spongy and fibrous tissue...


Looking forward to see my ''Brazilian Tall'' grow big now that its ground planted!!!
