Good luck Ed. Keep yourself and family safe! Nanners can be replaced! Hopefully it will start dying down fast! Hurricanes are crazy this year!!

Will be praying for you and your family!

Well its been 2 weeks since the last picture of the first bunch. So for comparison, this is the bunch today. I cut the flower off before Irma arrived.

Pic of 1st Bunch.


The 2nd Bunch turned over yesterday, and the outer leaf/pedal is ready to open.

Pic of 2nd Bunch/Bud:



Ah ... Surprise! Again! ... This morning while watering the plants (oh, it did rain yesterday) I found a 3rd Bud way up in the top of a taller Orinoco peaking out.

Pic 1 of 3rd Bud:


another Pic 2 of 3rd Bud:


Now I really don't have hopes the 3rd bunch will ripen. Time is too short (60 days now). But I will try the fill out the first hand on the bunch. I hope to fill out the first & second hands on the 2nd bunch, if I can get the hands open.

Darn ...Darn ... Darn ...

Just made a check on the large nana patch .... found 3 buds ... darn ... One bud on the Dwf Braillian and 2 on the FHIA18. These were trans planted 11 months ago.

I wanted these to hold off until net spring. Then I was going the push the hell out of them to flower.

Anyway, I got about 40 days until average frost date. ... May be frost will hold off until later December like 2015 (??). That would give about 60 day to fatten one or two hands on each.

I may push the hell out of ALL the nanas this winter. I got to make these bud sooner in the summer.

Dwf Brazillian:




FHIA-18


2nd FHIA-18 Bud

If you can ....are you able to finish the plant under 800 bucks worth of light for some nasty inedible fruit in 5-8 months.

It will give you something to post about...


Just kidding....

Shirley, ... You must be jesting. Dig up a 3 nana plants with a base the size of 5 gal buckets and transplant 75 gal pots. Then build a greenhouse with a 14 ft ceiling to keep 'em warm.

... hummm ... a Teepee type green house might work, but I don't know about heat. I don't think the Power Company will be happy if I hook jumper cables to the near by power lines for heater.
