Thanks Hector

Unfortunately the photography is nowhere near your levels

I replaced that basjoo mat with a musella lasiocarpa.

Hi beam

I made sure ring was washed off, otherwise my home would have become a no banana zone

I'm not sure what I'm going to do, with the potted up basjoo, possibly trade them.

Hi Musjtaq
What percentage of bleach are you using? I assume your diluting it with water. Powdered or liquid?

hehe ... Get a $3 bucket (5gal) from Walmart or a $6 mud tub from Lowes. Mud Tub: https://www.lowes.com/pd/MacCourt-Dr...d-Pans/1054711


Using the bath tub isn't worth the argument with the wife or the chance of stopping up that drain..


I have 3 or 4 of the tubs and use those to mix potting soil and to fill the pots. One fits perfectly between two 2x4's across saw horses and is at good working height for a potting bench.

Hi Checker

I used 300ML of liquid bleach diluted in every 14 litres of water into a bucket which then was poured into the bath tub to make it half full, for
4 reasonable large basjoo corms.

first you have buy/find the bucket. then you have to carry the bleach outside and then back again inside. jump in the bath tub with them and give them some nurturing and quality time. you can roll em round and round and throw em up in the air. wee
