Great photos Hector!

I need to get an owl like you have in your yard or a dog. I noticed this morning that somebody was digging around in my patch for worms and insects over night. Hope he doesn't get into the nanners!

Where are the patupi photos? Don't be shy! Haha.

Do you have any photos of the FHIA-18 at a more mature height and one with fruit? Thanks!

Donald,



No more birds on the ground or around the Nanas!.....These Owls are very effective!....They have a flap on the back of the head that when the wind hits the flap, the head of the Owl moves around!....

This is my first FHIA-18 Bonanza plant, but you can check our buddy, Nick Naranjas FHIA-18 Bonanza pictures of mature plants, in which some of them are flowering, blooming!.....Check post #1585......What's blooming in your garden? (bananas)





Musa Patupi Update from 06/17/2019......Both Patupi's keep growing fast now!.....



Musa Patupi (Kokopo, Vudu Papua) Mat #1......








Musa Patupi (Kokopo, Vudu Papua) Mat #2......

Thanks Hector for the link to Nick's FHIA-18 photo.

I'm going to get one of those owls next year to protect my blueberry bushes! It's raided by a pair of cardinals on a regular basis. I call them the "Red Raiders". They really work as a team with one of them on the "lookout" while the other grabs the goods.

Your patupis are coming along. Looking good! Did you fruit the original last year and if so what month? Thanks!

Thanks for the TARS info above!!!

You welcome!....Trust me!...These Owls are very effective!.....No more birds around!.....Also, it's good to move the Owls around, at least once a week!....The mother/main Patupi plant fruited around December last year!....

If you like the taste of a ripe plantain fruit, then you are going to love Patupi!.....That is what Patupi taste to me!....Straight up fruity ripe plantain taste!.....I love plantains, so I love Patupi!....It's one of my favorites!.....
