I love your flaming posts... they are really not needed.

It is a shame the forum members allow it and approve of it.
And for the members that thank these type of disrepecetful posts, I extend an invitation to visit my garden as well.

I wish you lived closer so you could see the wonderful things we are doing locally with banana plants and see the many professionally maintained plantings that we care for with plants purchased from you.

We have purchased plants from you in the past ....yet you still attack your paying customers........That is a Knucklehead.

Mike-

FWIW, there will always be discord among some members. It just happens. I have issues from time to time with Richard. It just happens.

Both you and PR Giants are respected experts in your fields. Sometimes this generates "sides" like some kind of stupid football league. On that note, we are not competitors; read that, Folks. Stop picking your favorite poster and start thanking the facts; the stuff that we really need to make this site work. That is why I came here. For info; not infighting.

So the question remains: Why in the hell can't we all get along?

It's great that you love flaming posts.

That post is not flaming.

And yes knucklehead was a reasonable response to you calling the members that thanked Mark's post "The three stooges".

Now stop your lying and crying.

You have never purchased plants from us.

The moderator has warned you many times about your lying and it's disappointing that this is so common on today's internet.

On one post you are trolling.

On the next post you want to keep it about container banana soil.

Then your posts are back to trolling, crying, and lying

I don't want to waste time replying to your nonsense, so knock it off.

Our members are not interested with your drama.

You have been trolling in our community for 6 years now and most members are well aware of your behavior.

The moderator has banned you many times for this.

Why do you spend your nights writing thousands of these nonsense posts only to delete them a few seconds later.

It's pathetic that you don't have something more productive to do with your evenings.

This is what I use in containers, I get it at Menards for around $8 a 2cu ft bag. Seems to work well, I don't suggest any moisture control soils.

The user agreement does not prohibit lying:

It is common practice for internet social media to ignore lying and that is why Russian Bots were successful.

Interesting that you like the drama, but I get messages from many member that don't and that includes the moderators. Most of us are busy and don't have time for this BS.

So, "our members" magically becomes "many member." If by "messages," you mean private messages, I am too busy for that BS.

Intentionally posting the same message 3 times is spam. One at 8:17 next at 8:22 next at 8:25. That is no accident! I bet that is in the rules! People like me that get notifications don’t need the wasted emails.

Nobody here wants to read spam and rants and provoking comments. Every time it’s the same. You carefully provoke someone into a fight. It seems 100% of every fights and problems on here has PR-Giants as one of the sides!

KNOCK IT OFF. EVERYONE. PLEASE!!
This an educational forum and this thread is on CONTAINER SOIL! I may be wrong, but I assume the OP is talking about a “pot” not a 10 mile long bed! Please give clear and helping advice or DONT POST!

If you wanna fight and call names go PM each other!

Yes ....there is...
However there are many recipes for success...

The cool part is that the internet has many, many great recipes for soil less mix's

For me...I pick and choose what is least expensive......yup I sale shop...

Default Re: Container banana soil.

Usually if you use 2 base ingredients (Perlite and Peat Moss) your mix will work! Just not too much peat! For every % or peat add double that amount of perlite! If you follow that rule it will turn out great!

Here is my absolute favorite!
25% peat x 50% perlite x 25% rice hulls!

25% peat x 50% perlite x 25% composted manure. (Bag or off the farm)

Other one if you don’t have rice hulls or composted manure.
25% peat x 50% perlite x 25% composted bark (I prefer pine)

Perlite will make any soil light, fluffy, airy, and well draining. It is all natural!! It’s not styrofoam! It’s popped volcanic material. Popped like popcorn! If you grow bananas long you will learn that bananas LOVE perlite!

I NEVER use sand in a mix! It will make your pot crazy heavy! It makes it very hard to water and while in sand the plant will have no nutrients! When you transplant, it will break apart your rootball ans roota! This will set your plant back by 2 weeks +! I use coarse sand to root corms when I need to. I also grow in sand! Native sand in ground! But I never use sand in a pot!

That is an awesome mix.
Rice hulls...nowhere to be found for me, bark fines however is another story.

I must add that a few forum members whom had switched to a container sand mix a few years ago are having a fit keeping their plants healthy over the winter months indoors.

But when their plants are in the ground the plants are beasts.
There is an Okie member that tilled in a few tons of sand in an island garden feature and his bananas are remarkable.
