After you receive the plant if you are happy with it and want to make a donation to feed the satos it would be appreciated but you are certainly not under any obligation. We've got a ton of dogs living on our farm and the numbers keep rising.

Received plants and potted up, thank you I'm excited to see how they do. I would like to send a donation, tried through PayPal but wouldn't work.

Here's the phone number to PayPal 888-221-1161, they probably would be the most helpful.

Glad they arrived ok.

An A'ea'e - Manini would be a much better choice if you are planning to hand pollinate.

AeAe- Manini for Sale 3 of them.

Those are water suckers which are superior to sword suckers for many of the variegated banana.

Sword suckers tend to rot, especially the A'ea'e - Manini and for most growers success is based on growing it faster than it rots.

Water suckers tend to rot less and that's why I prefer sharing water suckers.

The major downside to a water sucker is the grower doesn't get a long time to figure out which substrate works best, basically if it isn't done correctly 'Game Over' quickly approaches. A sword sucker allows an attentive grower many chances to change substrates which a professional doesn't need.

All the professionals I work with prefer the water suckers.

Ahh did not know that, i thought they were seedlings. Most of what i have read says the sword suckers are better with stronger roots. Not talking variegated plants though. This is good info.

Interpreting the definition of better is what confuses most hobbyist. Better generally means the sword sucker can initially withstand more abusive or harsh conditions. Professionals understand this and don't put their plants in those situations and once the water sucker is established the less tendency to rot becomes a major advantage.

Just look at the roots on this water sucker.

Can the roots be anymore perfect?

Substrate aeration is the most important part of a healthy plant and that's my main focus.

Figuring out a good substrate starts with determining what the plant does best in.

Because a banana plant has two distinct underground parts, the rhizome and the roots, should they be treated the same and if so which one should get preferential treatment. If not then what's an efficient way of giving both what they individually prefer.

Another way of looking at the balance of aeration and moisture in a substrate is which is easier to add or harder to remove as a plant becomes more established. Adding moisture is simple and lowering aeration is also very simple.

In the past I've tried explaining what I do but the problem with that is many hobbyist will substitute things without understanding how things function. There are hobbyists that don't understand the difference between BBQ charcoal and horticultural charcoal or pool filter sand and horticultural sand. When I saw members mixing pool filter sand with perlite it was clear I was wasting my time.

It's been a week and a half and I was curious how the roots were doing. Any info?

This is usually a good time to check because if they aren't doing great it gives the grower the opportunity to change substrates before conditions get worse.
