Unhappy Re: saw this on E Bay

chong, this is really a riot! "claimed" they were on the truck on dec28. I emailed her on the fifth of January and she said everyone got theirs but me. She said they must have got lost in the mail and she lost money this year on her bananas. She would send (jan.5) another two right away. It is now Jan.17, and I have not seen anything. You didn't get yours?

Nucci,
No, I have not received them. But on Dec. 30, she wrote "Howdy from the drowning GrannyP here in Texas. Your trees are on the truck. Will send you the DC number as soon as I can. I am on trip for holidays and do not have access to the file from laptop. Do let me know when they arrive. God Bless and Happy New Year."

Then on Jan. 7, she wrote, "Your tree stalks will go out tomorrows mail. Finally dry enough to ship. Anyproblems let me know. God Bless GrannyP".

And separately (again on 01/07), "INFO on your banana trees stalks.

Once you receave your stalks dont get alarmed...oh how ugly or this dont look like a whole tree. You can take the whole cum(sic)..of the this tree divide as many times as your wish and it will grown...alot of times more than one tree will emerge from the stalking.

Once you receave do not wash or scrub...plant directly into a pot of ground. When you did a spot to place your stalk (and if you got more than one plant together and seperate later on as they get bigger) They love being close by each other...(more)"

Now that I've seen those messages at once, I realize now that I should have gotten those plants by now.

Anna - Are you bragging or complaining???

Nucci,
Thanks for your update. As of today, I haven't gotten my order, either. I e-mailed her again last night to inquire on the status. As you can read from her email, she said my order was going to be in the mail the day following 01/07/2007. Maybe, mine got lost in the mail, too! Yeah, right!

Anna,
Did you get your "corms" right after you ordered them? Or, did it take more than 2 weeks, as well?

Chong

people, this is a hoot! I emailed her again and she told me to blame god, not her because of the snow, ice, and crazy weather. The one I DID recieve from the first auction which I said looked like "construction debris" arrived solid brown in color. I took her advice and potted it up DRY and put it under gro lux lights with my other growing nanas. It has been potted at least a month. nothing. So yesterday ! took it out of its pot and was almost completely rotted out. I found one little piece that was the size of a small gladiola bulb that was a little white. I potted it in a little three inch pot (dry) but I think it is gone. Where are you anna?

As I said, I emailed her last Sunday and she'd replied late last night. She says that she emailed me last week (I know she didn't because I still have all my e-mails from last week in my computer) and that the USPS had returned the package because there was no one to receive them, and that the notice slip was ignored. I'm unemployed and looking for work and I'm at my computer all day. And except for when my wife and daughter have to pick up our grandson from school, they're usually home, also. So, like you, I was just handed a line.

I told her to send the items. Let's see if I can get by next week. UPS from Texas only takes 3days to Seattle. USPS Priority Mail from even P. R. takes 2 days. And she sends it USPS, so let's see . . . .

Yeah, Anna, where are you? We're dying for info here.

Sorry! I've been down with the flu. I think all of the late nights running around outside in freezing temps to cover the plants wore down my immune system.

My corms look like, well, not corms. LOL! I looked at them then just put them in the garage to store until spring. I'll see if I can get some pics for you. I'm hoping that she is right and they will grow, but I don't see any life in them now. They look like, uh, maybe carved coconuts?

What are you all doing buying bananas in the middle of winter? And off eBay??? From someone in the cold part of Texas??? Doesn't make sense to me. Why not just wait till Spring?

Bigdog,

I think it was the price that got us. At least me. They were like 99 cents.
My mom always says at good sales "they're almost paying you to take it!"

Sorry about your illness. Hope you're much better now. And thanks again.

Nucci,
Any action on your order for the corms? I just email her again because she did not respond to my email last week. Didn't get my order either.

I just checked her eBay feedbacks. Looks like one of the reasons why she doesn't show any negative feedback is that she contests the negatives and have it withdrawn. So, they don't count to the total score, but the comments remain.

No chong, nothing yet. the one I did get died. It did look like annas.( thanks anna for pictures) . the lady said "don't wash or scrub it, plant it". I potted it up DRY and put it under the gro-lux tubes with my growing bananas, about amonth ago. nothing. I decided to de-pot it and it was all rotted and soft. no sign of living root or tissue. maybe it was my fault. I have a lot of experience with potted plants (have had a potted med. fan palm for 35 years) but no experience with banana corms. Any bananas i have were purchased live. Maybe it froze coming to me. Anyway they are cheap. the postage is much more than the banana.keep me informed. Bob

I hope you didn't throw it out yet. If there is some mass to the corm, keep it in the soil. It will grow when the weather is warm and sunny. I had a corm from Puerto Rico that grew ever so slowly, then die back because my family couldn't take careof it properly while I went on those FEMA assiegnment. When I got back last July, I thought I'd lost it, because the main plant died and the soil was bone dry. When I was feeling thru the soil in September, to try to save the soil, I noticed that the corm was hard. I nicked the side and saw fresh matter. I promptly put some fungicide on the wound and placed the corm on fresh soil. I kept watering the pot and after 2 months, I saw a sprout. Here's what it looks right now inspite of the power outage and cold weather in the past few weeks.
[IMG][/IMG]

Just try to keep the soil moist, not wet. I even just left the pot under an Asian pear tree back in September. But it did take several weeks before I saw the sprout thru the soil. Nick the corm about an 8th of an inch to see if there is still a white ""living" cell therein. If there is, swap it with some fungicide (if you have some rootone, use it - rootone has a fungicide mixed with it), and keep it in the moist soil. If you keep it warm enough, it should grow back.

Bob, I forgot. I will certainly keep you posted. I have to tread gently because she appears to be very confrontational when given a negative comment despite her being at fault, as in the case here.

Did you see where she's peddling that 37 presidential signature for $110,000.00? You have to be a really, really presidential nostalgia nut to buy anything like that. I'm an avid Elvis fan, but I wouldn't buy anything in that magnitude for anything Elvis. Even if it's his car. Although, I almost bid on his house in Memphis for $450,000.00. I think that eventually went for $905,100.00. But then, this is different. there's people around the world, including the prime minister of Japan, who might be interested in it in the future.

Speaking of that house, I saw a picture of the rec room, and pinned to the walls were LP covers of albums by Joni James. I'll bet a lot of you don't even know who she is.

Nucci,
I just now got several messages from the possum lady after I emailed her thru her private email, in addition to the eBay message system. To make a long story short, she claims she'd responded to me on the 23 Jan message I sent. Next email was thru her private email and said that she'd responded to my eBay message on the 22 Jan but she'll send me the Delivery Confirmation Number from the USPS. Next she sent an "here it is" message with the DC as "420925039101785091401022410201". I tracked that number and it said that "package was delivered at 1:01 PM on January 11, 2007 in RIVERSIDE, CA92503." So, someone in that locality must have gotten a "bonus shipment" from the possum lady. Anybody you know live in that area??? (hint, hint!)

If it's not you, because you indicated so, someone near you might be getting her shipments. Anyway, track that number up at the USPS site and see if I'm right.

Cheers!
Chong

Nucci,
Well, finally, she sent me another Delivery Confimation Number just now, and it said that the package was shipped on Jan. 26, 2007, though it didn't say where it was going. I will keep checking the USPS site daily and let you know if, in fact, it's headed my way. I will be on the road tomorrow on my way to Vegas for a job interview on Monday morning. I'm scheduled to fly back Monday evening at 7:00PM, but I may stay another day if things go well. I will be checking with my family in any case, and I may bring my laptop along if I don't feel too lazy.

Later!
