*****An Update!*****




The SH-3640 High Noon 5 years old Mat had to go!.....It was in a bad spot, location!.....Too tall of a Nana Variety for the location!....I already transplanted a big SH-3640 High Noon pup to a new spot, which is thriving in the new location!.....One of my best Nana growers!....What a beast!....


Pictures from 10/23/2019.....













SH-3640 High Noon old Mat if completely gone!.....


Pictures from 10/25/2019....












Wooohoooo!......Musa Gran Nain big sword pup was transplanted to the ground in the old, previous SH-3640 High Noon Mat spot, location using coarse sand...…A perfect height Nana Variety for the location!....


Pictures from 10/30/2019.....









Musa Gran Nain big sword pup transplanted to the ground next to Musa Williams.....Two awesome Cavendish Nana Varieties next to each other!.....


Picture from 10/30/2019....











*****An Update is coming soon!*****

How do you keep your potted nana plants happy? (fertilizer, water etc.….) I just ordered several plants from Ty and am planning on keeping them in pots till our “winter” is over, and they are bigger. I haven't had any luck growing banana plants in a pot for even a short amount of time. they either get some kind pest (aphids) or they get yellow. Any suggestions are appreciated!!!!!!! Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

Joe,


NANNA PLANT IN DISTRESS!.....WHAT!.....Must be that Moonshine you are drinking!...........I might hire someone!.....Ohhh!.....I know who!....I want to see you guys apologizing more frequently!............

Seriously, I just left the Nana Mat rhizome to get exposed like that!....I will dig out the whole rhizome to thin out the Nana Mat!....

For potted Nana plants I used coarse sand with lots of perlite mix as a medium!....Also, most of my potted Nana plants are in my house balcony, until they are ready to go to the ground!....During winter time, I know in Orlando, FL, gets cold during winter time, you might need to bring your potted Nanas inside in your house or keep them in a Greenhouse!.....Make sure to use growth lights to keep them growing!.......There are nice threads/posts in here, the forum, mentioning some very good methods to keep potted Nanas during winter time!....

Joe,



Yes!....That is Musa Veinte Cohol Mat!....It’s time to thin her out!....I will dig out the whole mat, separate the plants from the rhizome and transplant back to the ground the biggest Veinte Cohol plant, which is the one on the right in the picture!.....Then I will keep the other two in pots as backup, just in case!....


If you don’t mind, I will post PICTURES of the whole process soon!.....

Hector, I told you when you first posted a photo of the Dwarf Nino that Tytaylor77 sent you that it was not a Dwarf Nino.

Everyone that saw your photo should have been able to realize that your banana was not a dwarf, and if it's not a dwarf it can't be a Dwarf Nino.

If you had simply measured a leaf blade and divided the length by the width you would have realized that it was not a dwarf.

Unfortunately it's very common for some seller's to ship the wrong bananas and that's why buyer's should take a few minutes to learn the basics about identifying a banana.

Links To Help Identify Your Banana

Next, you should have looked at your banana for signs of balbisiana.

The Dwarf Nino is an 'AA' diploid and has no signs of balbisiana.

Again, everyone that saw your photo should have been able to realize that your banana has balbisiana in it so it can't be a Dwarf Nino or any other 'AA' diploid or 'AAA' triploid.

Next, you should try to determine the amount of balbisiana it has.

Again, everyone that saw your photo should have been able to realize that your banana has a heavy amount of balbisana and most likely is an 'ABB' type.

There was never a chance that your banana was a Dwarf Nino because everything pointed to an 'ABB'

It should never have taken you over a year to figure that out.

The next step was to figure out which 'ABB' cultivar Tytaylor77 sent you.

It was not surprising that your 'AA' Dwarf Nino turned out to be an 'ABB' Monthan.

When someone attacks Hector (Helendez) that puts them at an all time low. He is the most generous, kindest, and selfless person I have met in my entire life. I do not say that lightly. And a great friend of mine. Everyone who knows him knows how much he has sacrificed for his family, friends, and country. And even this community!

The clone was not sold but was given to him to grow out in his warmer conditions to see what it was. It was labeled niño Enano from Puerto Rico lol.

How you word what you write and repeat to call out “everyone” for missing the ID after the fact just shows how little you think of “everyone” compared to yourself.

Hector bro please keep posting your updates and pictures! I for one support you 100% and absolutely love your posts! Please don’t be be phased by the comments of someone I have 0 respect for. You are doing an amazing job bro!

Besides any good grower will wait for a flower to confirm an ID. Which is exactly what you did! The rest of your comments was early excitement and is exactly what makes you such a great person! keep it up!

@PR Giants now I know why you are notorious for never answering people's messages.. you're busy sitting way up there on your high horse condescending. Enjoy it up there. Probably gets lonely. Just makes people dislike you. I have spoken. Happy growing!
