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



All pictures from 03/15/2019.....



FHIA-17 Kabana and FHIA-18 Bonanza kept growing after being transplanted to the ground!.....Woohoo!......No signs of transplant shock!....Both of them kept pushing out the new cigar leaf!....I always try to do my best to avoid transplant shock!....


FHIA-17 Kabana....










FHIA-18 Bonanza.....


















The SH-3640 mutation/off type clone and Sumatrana X (Gran Nain + Zebrina hybrid) are doing excellent!....Sumatrana X was struggling!...Her 3gal. pot
was too big for the size of her rootball!....I transplanted Sumatrana X to a smaller 1.5L pot and she recovered remarkable!...She just took off growing!....Thank you Anke (crazy banana) for sending me very nice Nana Varieties!....Your babies are doing awesome!....


The SH-3640 mutation/off type clone......I will transplant it next/close by the true to type/real SH-3640 to compare them!.....









Musa Sumatrana X is growing nicely now!.....She is pushing out the second leaf since I transplanted her to a smaller 1.5L pot!.....

















The little, very tiny (LOL!.....) FHIA-3 Sweetheart should be flowering at any time now!....

All pictures taken in 03/16/2019.....



Woohoo!.....Finally, I received The Maricongo Plantain corm yesterday, 03/16/2019.....Maricongo Plantain corm was wrapped inside of another shipping bag to protect the corm!....






Big Maricongo Plantain corm was wrapped in newspaper!....






I received a nice size Maricongo Plantain corm....












Big Maricongo Plantain corm taking a bath of water with bleach!.....






Big Maricongo Plantain corm was transplanted to a big pot using pool filter silica coarse sand and lots of perlite mix!.....Maricongo Plantain corm was moved to the house balcony to avoid any rain (water)!.....Once it's rooting and starts pushing out new leaves, it will join the rest of The Nanas in pots........












Pictures from The TARS Catalog of The Maricongo Plantain as reference!.....Maricongo Plantain is the number one commercial Plantain Variety in Puerto Rico!.....Also Maricongo Plantain is responsible for a couple of Plantain Varieties mutations!......Common Harton Plantain is a sport mutation of The Maricongo Plantain!.....PR (Common) Dwarf Plantain is a dwarf mutation of The Maricongo Plantain!.....

Thank you to both John's!......I appreciate it guys!....




One thing that I would like to mention/clarify is The Maricongo Plantain Variety is a false-horn type Plantain Variety!.....In the TARS Catalog Maricongo Plantain first page in the curator notes (in the General Tab) it says French type bunch!.....Then in the same page if you look/search the bunch phenotype (in the Agronomic Tab) it says false-horn type!.....
