I don't believe a banana from one source is going to grow or thrive better than one from another source.

That's very true, but in some ways I would prefer a T/C over a small pup, but that's just me. Medium to large pup I'll take corm power.. :^)

I'd rather have a small pup than a tissue culture plant any day unless it was a very large tissue culture plant (2' tall).

I wouldn't just leave it at that Harvey.. I'd rather have a healthy stout 18" T/C over a really thin 2 footer. I can say the Veinte Cohol T/C I got from GB was really healthy and prime to grow. See the pups sent out by GB are lucky to have a leaf exposed, thus the reason for my previous statement. :^)

What are the major differences in shipping/receiving a plant with no leaves exposed? And what is the major health differences in a tissue culture and pup?

No idea on the Ice Cream or D. Namwah, or Caligold, but the Sweetheart jumps out of the ground.. This in reference to banana pups ordered w/o any leaves showing.. and after taking a trip in the mail. Now pups w/ leaves and roots grow just fine. :^)

plants don't like to have "UP" messed with

I get the feeling smaller plants like it less and take longer to recover from the clothes dryer sort of ride the USPS must be.
