Picture from 09/08/2019....












Musa Red Kru keeps growing nicely!....What a stunning and beautiful Nana Variety!....Has been mentioned to me from prior members that Musa Red Kru is one of the best tasting Nana Varieties!....I can't wait to taste Musa Red Kru!....

All pictures from 09/26/2019....




Woohooo!.....Finally!....Musa AeAe Manini #2 was transplanted back to the ground in a different spot, location!....Bottom and sides of the pot were cut out to make easier for transplanting and to not disturb the rootball, therefore to avoid transplant shock!....



















Musa AeAe Manini #2 was transplanted back to the ground using pool filter silica coarse sand!....






















Another stellar Nana Variety, Musa Tuu Ghia big pup was transplanted to the ground using pool filter silica coarse sand also!.....



















Front row from left to right: Musa Tuu Ghia and Musa AeAe Manini already in the ground!....

Hector you should patent your banana planting technique. You have designed an assembly line for creating a banana forest! So many varieties and they all look great!

Make sure you get some good photos of your patupi when it flowers!

It would be great, if you could get the newly planted Ae Ae and Florida to flower at the same time, they are looking beautiful.

That would definitely be awesome!.....But I think Musa Variegated Florida will grow faster, being an AA Genome Type Nana Variety!.....We will see!.....

Bill,


Yes!.....I suggest, advice to prop/brace both of them!.....But specially Musa Tu'u Ghia!......Musa Tu'u Ghia P-Stem is too skinny!....Mine got knocked down during hurricane Dorian passing by very close to South Florida!.....


Please check the thread Musa Tu'u Ghia Update!


Also, Musa Paggi looks more robust than Musa Tu'u Ghia but she develops a big Nana bunch!....I suggest propping/brace Musa Paggi as well!....
