just a few more to collect from neighbours... and some stayed at their summer home

last year the big ones i chopped down did quite well so i tried it with most of the plants this year
usually the leaves which grew outside die when they come inside and vice versa
it makes it a little easier going through the kitchen and down the stairs to the basement too

they will likely be hitting the ceiling in no time
luckily no flower buds were encountered while hacking

Nice collection of plants you have, I find the one good thing about bringing them in is that we don't have to water them as much, you sure do have your hands full watering all of yours. I don't cut my nana down, I treat her as a house plant, I enjoy seeing her all winter and she does put out new leaves.

I'm going to try chopping back half of my pots.

You're right, the leaves I bring inside don't make it long. And the leaves produced inside don't make it outside in the spring!

That way I can enjoy looking at several of my plants this winter, like Christine, and not have a jungle in my dining room!

i almost forgot about the fruiting one
my friend had wrapped the bunch with a pair of track pants and put a hand warmer packet
hanging slightly below in the track pants so the heat would rise towards it
he did this on a couple nights when the temperatures went near zero (and there was frost)
the bunch has been cut now and is hanging
the yellow colour is likely cold damage and not ripeness
some seem filled in or close to it while others look angular still
hopefully we will be able to eat some!

oh yeah, the scale of this bunch is quite small...
not exactly a 100+lbs rack!

yes the watering is fun at first and becomes a chore at times
i would like to get a hose and wand
carrying buckets and watering with a jar is how i do it now
i use an abs pipe to reach the far ones
it is about 3 feet long and i pour the jar into the one end

well one month later and two of them have hit the ceiling


thats the dwarf iholena and a dwarf cavendish
it is somewhat problematic that they are already this big since there are many months left of being indoors

a funky leaf came out of this chopped in half lacatan


will these two ensete ventricosum hit the ceiling by spring?????????????

well most of the bananas were eaten... they were best with the skin black


the ensete ventricosum large seed were transplanted to larger containers
the other one of the two had more roots but the pic was blurry


they seem happy.. i put them right under the HPS



everything is growing some bug issues though...


i noticed a flag today... unfortunately it only has 3 small leaves
that is its pup in the foreground
it will have many months of steady temperatures at least

some 2020 pics of the garden


the flowering one is on the right side of this next pic... its pup is obscuring the view
the flower is pushing out fairly slowly

i like this pic... turned out nice


a friend had a dwarf iholena flower after being chopped down, brought inside near a window
it was a large plant this past summer
i have not seen it in person but the flower is huge apparently and has dropped since this pic was taken

Your plants are insane......and your professional electrical setup looks just like mine.

Plants look nice and healthy......the chalk on the stems give them away.

Great video.
You need a machete and a flashlight to get through that jungle.

I have a few plants which snapped at the soil line ....which is not good.

Your plants look amazing in your grow room....
