Mushtaq,


I was waiting for this!.....LOL!.....Good observation buddy!.....Thank you for the advices, suggestions!.....Nana Greenhouse is all tight up with commercial grade black zip ties!....Then the Greenhouse is tight up to the wooden fence using a piece of heavy duty electrical cord in each side!....

In case the commercial zip ties doesn’t work, then I will replace the zip ties with heavy duty electrical cord!.....I think it should be good with the commercial grade zip ties!......They are very strong!......Seems The Nana Greenhouse is very secure!.....

FHIA-2 Mona Lisa keeps growing nicely!....At the beginning, FHIA-2 Mona Lisa was a slow grower!....Now she is picking up the growing pace!.....She is approaching 4 1/2 ft. tall!....


At the background, you can appreciate the little, tiny FHIA-3 Sweetheart!.....LOL!......With only 40 to 42 inches at the base (circumference)!.....FHIA-3 Sweetheart should be flowering soon!....

Hector, do you use old banana plants as mulch for your patch? I just chopped down four plants which fruited this year and my patch is covered with banana plant mulch. The suface of your patch appears clear of mulch.

Donald,


Awesome job buddy!......I still use Nanas as mulch!....There's not better mulch than pieces of old Nana plants!.....I just moved all the mulch from the Nanas to the compost bins!....To let decompose faster, quickly!....Also, I'm adding coffee grounds, grass clippings and biochar (very crushed wood charcoal) to the compost bins......Eventually I will cover the Nana mats again with a much better quality mulch!.....
