I had good luck with Stokes Tropicals and Logee's and bad luck with Greenearth, Inc. The best ones that I have received are from members here like Jon, Jimmmy, James, and Sandy. You might want to try a "Wanted" ad first in the Classified section to see if any members here have a pup that they can sell you.

I ordered 4 plants from Jimmmy (Plantucopia) through the classifieds here. I received 5 plants and they have all done wonderfully. I would not hesitate to buy from them again.

Pretty sure Rare Bananas is run by Jarred, our Admin (MediaHound). So yes, this would be a reputable source.

I was real happy with the plant Jimmy sent me. I did plant it even tho the postal service cut its head off ! It looks like it will grow back.I belleve it will. Jimmy felt so bad he is sending me another. I didnot want him to but he insisted. What a great man to deal with ! He cares.
Banana people are the best !!!!!!!!
