Default Second TC batch rooting and hardening!!


Two weeks ago I got my second TC batch of banana plantlets and following the same proccess as last time,I potted them up! This time I did it much faster and less meticulously than last time as I now knew they did not need that much thorough cleaning nor individual water baths from fear of contamination.
Checking on them yesterday,I found them alive and well and much bigger than they were when I potted them! So it's a success again so far!

Here is a photo of them I took yesterday! Bad quality,as usual,but fluorescent lighting and condensation are not conductive for decent photos!

I will let them grow like that 2 more weeks and then start the hardening process!

Looking forward to see them big!!!

Please keep us posted. We have four t/cs and are thinking of doing much more. Ours are doing good and we didn't go through as much as you have to get them going. Don't change anything, it costs a lot to get them to you but we are very close to Agri-Starts and the prices and shipping are fairly good. Just do not know which to get first.
Good luck and more pics when available.
