lots of changes since the last update
i left the fhia 02 and matoke out quite late this year
brought them in about a week ago and i separated some pups and i will attempt to store the main stems dormant


here is the basjoo and possible musa thomsonii only a couple days ago

and earlier today


on sunday i drove around the beaches neighbourhood looking for tropicals and semi tropicals which had not been brought inside yet.. i ended up convincing a bunch of people to bring their plants in for the winter and also several people gifted me their plants
it was fun to talk to other people who were into growing !
i ended up with these banana plants which were some type of dwarf

i separated 1 pup but the rest i will try to store dormant
i also was gifted 4 ensete ventricosum maurelii (from 2 different people)
which i will attempt to store dormant

there were a bunch more houses with banana plants but no one answered the door which is unfortunate because that night there was a hard freeze
i also ended up bringing home a small bird of paradise and 3 clusters of palms

inside the containers are doing well... i just need to keep up with the watering and care..


the mystery seedling which i now think is ensete glaucum is looking waxy


this one stalled and then pushed a new leaf beside the other!


more updates soon... good to see the forum back up after several days of being down

Wow...you got some snowy weather in the GTA.
The hard freezes are rolling in from the north this week for me.

Looks like a great haul of new plants for the indoor/outdoor jungle.

OG is gangster and is an excellent addition to the garden.

seems like it worked... 10 day forecast is looking good
all the snow that fell will likely melt (at least at this end of lake ontario)

yeah, two 1000W hortilux eye super hps
if i need to i can turn on some t5s and t12s if the edges get shaded
i have cut a bunch of leaves in half to let the light through
here is a pic of what i think is ensete glaucum to compare from a couple posts ago


it is in the shadow of this dwarf iholena, which i have not cut any leaves in half on it yet


starting to bring some smaller ones out from the shadows and into the direct light


this is a pup of a balbisiana which i gave to a friend(the one i kept died), i cut it pretty small but the season was ending and i really wanted a copy... it is growing


this is a pup from the matoke which i cut off when i dug it up to dormant store it
again it was cut on the small side but it is starting to grow
the one behind it is from the matoke as well ... has not put out a new leaf yet but still looks ok

i have another matoke pup which is further along.. it was rooted in the summer... doing well

varying results each season but i believe the years i lost all foliage was due to underwatering
i am trying to water all of my plants more this season and i think it is working
last year my friend took a pic of the plumeria with no leaves and one flower
it is starting to flower on the branches near the door and i think the sparse leaves on top is just lack of light

I wasn't sure if your Plumeria stayed out of dormancy indoors.
Southern plants in their natural enviroment are deciduous.

I discovered some mites on a few colocasias, I guess I will have to battle them
for a few weeks.
I'd like to take them outside to spray once we get a warmer day.

Spring is coming up
