Joy Plants received in the mail already pushing new growth!

Here are plants that I received in the mail from both Jarred and Sandy (and the velutina from e-bay) What growth I'm starting to get!!! "I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it, I know, I know, I know, I know that I want you, I want you [BANANAS!!!!]" Hahaha ABSOLUTELY consider purchasing ANYTHING from them! The ones from Sandy are TC's, but are very very VERY healthy! Side note, this is not a paid advertisement LOL!


Musa Jamaican Red from Jarred finally starting new growth since receiving! I removed all of the dead tissue and up it came a few days later. Everything you see that's green is new growth!



Musa Williams Hybrid from Jarred finally starting new growth! This one I took off all of the dead tissue and the old green tissue split exposing the middle and new leaves emerged!!! I had to take almost 6-8 inches off to get this to happen, well worth it though!!!




Musa Double Mahoi that I received from Sandy! They are doing well. Now acclimated and in full sun!




Musa Hua Moa that I received from Sandy. The leaves got tathered a little from shipping (the only one that did have any damage), but it already has a new leaf ready to emerge! It's acclimated already and in full sun!




Musa Ice Cream I received from Sandy.




Musa Rajapuri I received from Sandy.




These are the Musa Velutina replacements sent to me from the seller on e-bay. These have done very well and already pushed out one new leaf each!




The best for last!!! Musa Orinoco I received from Jarred. The huge corm didn't push out any new growth, so I leveled it out. What an awsome idea?!?! The tall pup you see, about a foot to 16" emerged and has grown this much after TWO WEEKS!!!! Isn't that AMAZING! Four of the smaller ones are ones that I had removed from the corm. Now the corm has FOUR MORE attached (counting the 12"+ one)!!!! Anyone ready for a trade before they get too big?!?!?!

I'm keeping them in pots only long enough to let them revive and/or til my grass is all removed from my back yard. I expect that to be either May or June. Hopefully in May!!!!! We'll see!

Have a TON of other projects going on in the house that have to get done first.. most importantly is finishing the master bath, it's all done but the shower, the shower is being built of small 1/2" glass beads (that you find in the craft section at Wally World). Very custom, there's two different cascades done with the glass beads along with some designs in there. I'm having to put them on the wall ONE AT A TIME! It's taken me 4 months so far between jobs and other things to get it done! I'll post pics of it when it is done! I REALLY can't wait til it is!

I'm sure they'll be very happy in their new home. Now, can we come to stay too?
I'm tired of Indiana weather.
We definitely all want to try that shower when it's finished! You have to post pictures when that baby is finished...
