Alls well that ends well .
I had a look on Google Earth and it's only an 11 hour drive to Brians Botanicals from where we will be in the US come January . So I'll be making a Roadtrip or two in the late Spring .
Now , what's the next Holy Grail for a Banana grower ?

A pic from a post I made at UKOasis , http://www.ukoasis.co.uk/index.php



I wish I'd found this site a while ago . Thanks all for the great pics and info here.

Later
Steve

Steve you ask what is next and I have seen a few things not yet on the market. Their are around 9 variegated forms of bananas in Thailand all selling at around 1,000.00 I am planning on getting a few new forms in the near future. One has red trunks with white var a few others yellow variegation.

The most unusual thinks I think we will see are out of the crazy labs in Thailand that are trying to produce some extremely odd stuff. They are using any process and chemical known. Some seem to be almost unethical LOL. One which I am talking about is adding firefly genes to plant cells to get them to glow in the dark. It works and the plants do produce light. They are also hitting seeds with gamma rays to produce mutations and variegations. It seems to be working on some scale.

I'd like to be involved with this purchase. Can I get some background info on who is purchasing, when, etc. What can you tell me about the plant, specifically hardiness and care? I'm well on my way to killing my second Dwarf Namwah Pearl.

Thanks, Maury

Join the crowd! Mine has survived one winter but looks to having some issues at the moment. I don't think many have survived.

Look, there are some things I have to say publicly. While I understand that Taylor has said things that shouldn't have been said and made multiple accounts, I do not think he should be banned permanently. I know you have a grudge against Taylor, Jarred, but you should be an impartial moderator and not let your personal animosity make the decision. I know you are still upset that he tried making his own forum, but he deleted it. It would not have competed with yours. You could delete the offensive posts and warn him.

We have to remember that Taylor is a 14 year old. I am glad there are young people on this board and it should not be an exclusively adult board. He is very enthusiastic about growing bananas and we should be encouraging him, rather than banning him. A month of banning should be adequate. That is a good smack on the wrist and should discourage this behavior. I know several other people who have emailed Taylor think that he is enthusiastic about plants, and that is quite rare for a teen.

I am considering leaving this board because of this. I don't care if you ban me, but I think everyone has the right to say what they feel. Rest assured, I WILL NOT be recommending this forum any longer and you will not be getting more posters because of me. I enjoyed my stay here but I think I will go where everyone is wanted and not where personal feelings of the moderator are allowed to taint what should be an impartial job.


You know, ban me if you like, Jarred. I don't really care anymore. I will not be back if the lack of impartiality issue is not cleared up. I love plants and really enjoy talking about Musaceae, but this is a bit rediculous. Goodbye!

Zac

Zac, Taylor was given a chance to apologize and spit it right back at me.
How would have you handled the situation? A 1 month ban? That's not far off from what I did, rather we haven't even reached that point yet. I still think we're on the same page, we're in clear agreement so far, Zac.
Taylor will have some cooling off time to think about creating multiple personalities just to ruffle feathers. In the meantime, I will reconsider his ban being either permanent or temporary. I'm sorry you do not see the seriousness of this as I do, but it needs to be nipped in the bud. This board is like a fine stew with lots of ingredients. When we mix them together, we have a wonderful thing. When we have the wrong chemistry, it falls apart. Being the chef, I have to make decisions in the best interest for everyone.
And I do appreciate all the support you've given to us, you know that, we've spoken about it before...
I know you and Taylor are friends and whatnot, so if you want to relay any message from him to me in a PM, please do. Thanks

Not sure which thread to put this in, but I don't want to miss it, so I'm in for the $45 tc. Is there going to be an official list started? Also - at what point will payment be made, and at what point will the plants be ready to go? No rush, though, we're lucky to have this opportunity, thanks Ty and Brian!
