All pictures taken on March 2, 2017.....



Pisang Raja corm opened the second leaf completely!...Now is pushing out the third leaf!.....






Ice Scream Blue Java corm just "exploded" growing!....First leaf should open in any time!.....This thing is huge in size!...






FHIA-17 "monster grower" keeps pushing out, opening a new leaf!...Also, I removed, pulled down the outer layers of the corm base, they are drying....No longer needed!.....








*****Follow Up!*****


FHIA-1 TARS "real deal" Goldfinger keeps pushing out new leaves very quick!....Growing fast now!....Compare this pictures to the prior ones and you will see!.....






PR Cuerno De Alce (ARH Plantain) keeps pushing out the long, slender flower bud!...I measured The ARH Plantain and she is 12 ft. tall!... A very tall plantain variety!.....Also, as you can see in the first picture, on the back far left, is my FHIA-21 Plantain!....I measured The FHIA-21 Plantain and she is 10 ft. tall!.....FHIA-21 Plantain should be flowering at anytime now!....

Awesome job as always Hector. That manini looks amazing. How many pups does it have. Mine is going in the ground here in the next week or two. You have the magic touch with corms for sure.

Looking great!

I have a Manzano Plant that is 4' plus and 4+ months old.
It is in a container right now and I want to plant it out doors after frost is not a threat.
Soil outside has clay and mica so it does not drain all that well. I am afraid of the plant becoming water logged and would like to build a planter base above the top of ground level. Will the plant put down roots strong enough to support the plant? Or do I have to stake it as it gets taller?
