Talking Re: For the new guys

I sell 4 different sizes, a small pot, large brick, extra large brick, and a jumbo brick, and all are grown in a premium soilless mix.

The SH-3640 was a small pot and Highgate was a large brick for Tytalyor77.

Both of jeffaroo's plants were large bricks.

In the photo below is a jumbo brick that was shipped to a member yesterday.

Shipping one plant costs $12.40

Shipping two small pots or one jumbo brick is $17.05.

Any empty space is then filled with 2 inch thick solid styrofoam boards to prevent movement.

These bricks maximize the space in the box and protect all of the small feeder roots so they make it safely to their destination.

It is much better than shipping bare root with wet paper where some large roots may survive but many large roots get damaged and die and all of their small feeder roots die.

Default Re: For the new guys

That's the point I did purchase several from you. The AEAE received in horriable condition almost 2 month as after I ordered. The newest 2 Higate was purchased on March 6th and was received April 8th. Other took over a month as well.

After spending several hundred dollars and waiting patiently! Not even complaining about the month shipping delays or the AEAE. Then that email proves I was still nice and polite. See how I am greeted in return? Your welcome!

Everyone here already knows what you are about. Where was you at teaching everyone all winter? You always leave when it's not banana sales time and every year you show back up with some new idea and change.

I hope anyone can grow roots like that in Puerto Rico. They grow wild like that down there! show me pics of your bunches when you grew in CA, CO, CT, FL, OH, MA, MI, NH, NY.

I'm done with you and am glad you blocked me. It's really ashamed you could help a lot of people. Instead of just caring about selling new members $150 variegated plants. So go ahead with the childish attacks. It shows your true character and what kind of person you are.

You have inspired me though. I'm expanding like I never have. I have 100 acres so room isn't an issue. The price of short cycle and variegated bananas is about to become very affordable in the next couple years.

Price Match Guantee! Mine are $10 less Puerto Rico prices!

Still no reply why you take a knife and carve the new pups and nubs from all your corms? What does this help? Why do you do this?

It seems that you do not read the listings

2 weeks is not 2 months

You really should consider reading the listing before you buy something.

The expected delivery date is there to let you know when to expect the delivery.

There are special winter prices for members, the plants are cared for until the member's expected delivery date. It is very simple if you have a calendar.

One of your friends bought that Jumbo brick for $7.95, go ahead and ask.

It was ordered on Feb 24 the same day you purchased the SH-3640.

Expected delivery date is May 15 but it should arrive tomorrow.

Banana plants sell for 30 cents in Puerto Rico.

The entire bunch of perfect fruit sells between $5 to $7.

Every year there are always members that promise to make variegated bananas very affordable, but the promise is always in future and never comes to fruition.

On July 12, I shipped 3 variegated rhizomes, 2 extra large (one went to another member) and 1 large that went to tytaylor77.

What makes July 12, such a special day is that two members were shipped variegated rhizomes and both members vowed to make variegated bananas very affordable.

This is going to be exciting, we have a race to the bottom between two members who both were shipped variegated rhizomes on July 12.

I wouldn't be surprised that with this competition between these two that one of them or maybe both start to give them away.


There is a large demand for variegated bananas and it is the marketplace that really determines the price.



There is a Zoo botanical garden in the United States that received their Variegated Manini today and they made it very clear that the price will be OK for the Zoo's budget.

I received a very nice text from them this afternoon...

Keith this was the nicest package I have ever seen!
It's already sent up a leaf.

That coming from anybody is great but when it comes from a botanical garden it is very special.

Many people are concerned more about getting quality then the price, but not everyone is the same.

Maybe by cutting the eyes off, it forces growth into the roots and main shoot.
