Potted two of the 5 bordelon pups that were surrounding my plant if they make it they will need a new home.

Thumbs up Re: What did you pot today (Bananas)

The last three that I planted were Manzano, Hua Moa and Siam Ruby. Digging in the limestone is quite a workout but the plants look good already and the SR has a few pups. I have mounded about 3" of fresh horse manure mixed with bedding around the p-stems, out to a 3' radius over the cleared off soil. The three plants are in a single SSE-NNW row, 12' apart. I also fertilized the recently planted RP with fresh horse manure collected near the street. Continuing to clear land for planting on a daily basis. Never a dull moment in this Florida weather.

I potted up my beautiful Siam Ruby last night, she will stay inside until this weekend as we seem to be in the "monsoon" season here, its been raining for 3 days. First we are down 8 inches in rain fall for the season and now that is no longer an issue!

Talked local city workers nearby into giving me their dumptruck full of composted mulch. Around seven tons worth. I repayed them with some basjoos. So I planted around 30 basjoos into a new bed.

Today I potted ebun musak (2), cardaba, mahoi and klui kai that I received from Plantucopia through the classifieds here. Thanks so much Jimmmy!!!

I'll probably leave them in the pots for the winter in a friend's greenhouse and plant them in the spring.

I have been busy and much on the road lately.

Last week, I potted up two really nice, and big, corms from Pete: A great big ice cream and an orinoco. Also, I potted up two nice little plants I got from Richard: a double and a misi luki.

Not sure where the camera is atm, will post pics later.
