This surely brightened up a dreary day. Thanks to PR-Giants I'm the proud owner of some new big hunkin' bananas. I thought the mailman was going to throw his back out getting the box out of the truck.

Meet my new ladies.

Patupi (The banana I've been obsessing over for several months. )

FHIA-21 and Veinte Cohol. Really excited to see if I can get the 21 to produce in my zone. I enjoy a challenge.

Beautiful Manini that I could club someone with.

I'm amazed they all fit in the box.

Thanks, Keith. They're gorgeous. Now I just have to make sure I do them justice.

As my adventure in growing from corms continues, y'all get to be bored by pics. I'm just documenting the progress so I can see if and when I screw up.

It's been a week since I potted by corms, and I'm excited to say three out of four have the start of roots. For some reason the FHIA-21 appears to be chilling out. Maybe she just doesn't like Louisiana. However....





Manini roots are appearing and it looks like she's trying to grow.



Veinte Cohol





And what appears to be my star grower...my patupi.

It was toying with my emotions for awhile, but now I feel so much better.
