Exclamation Post if getting Musa 'Siam Ruby' from Agri-Starts

ONLY POST HERE IF YOU ARE WILLING (no backing out) TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE ACE of HEARTS PURCHASE.

Example - YES, $20 but $40 if not enough people.

This should get us a count - (We'll also see how many people can READ)

Terry,

I'm in for $40 even if we get enough people. If we get more than enough, I'll back down on one at $20 and just get one. I kinda want to get two at $20, but one at $40 would be great too. I hope we can get this baby to grow! Who is collecting the $$$? It would be nice if it's someone with a merchant or paypal acct.

Does this post make any sense to you? I just read it and Gosh! I confused myself!

I have to 'delurk' for this, folks!


Yes, $20 but $40 if not enough people ... definitely, YES!

Saw this one go for $565.00 (if I remember the ending bid correctly - for sure more than the website asks for - I suspect that the ebayer/seller is also affliated with the Asiatic Nursery, both are from PA. Maybe he's the client that has the license for the TC from Agristart?).

Came here looking for a source for Ae-Ae, & found gold! What a wealth of info here!

I've posted because this thread had fallen to page #2. Are we still adding people? It would be a shame to quit when we are this close.
Wasn't someone on the list raising these just north of Orlando? If Agri-Start is producing a few thousand, I don't think we will affect his business, and he might be a better source.
Anyway, let's get this project active again!

I would be willing to go $20 and very possibly $40, to put us over and cover shipping. But I do have a few questions. Have we decided what we are going to do with the plant, TC, TC a pup, etc. And we need to think about when the TC is successful does $20 get 1 plant and $40 get 2?

It turns out I'll have some tissue cultured Red Thai banana plants within the next 4-6 months. I'll sell them to to those interested here.
