Hello.

You will find it very difficult, if not impossible, to get Texas Star or California Gold in Europe. I could be proven wrong, however.

(Finally an answer ... thanks!)

I had noticed that these species are difficult to obtain, but there are others supposedly easier. I'll keep trying, but I realized that here will be difficult ...

Hope is the last to die!

Good morning,

Gentlemen,

I don't know if I am mistaking but i have read on this forum and on other websites that "Texas star" could be exactly a Dwarf Orinoco. In this case it is only a commercial name.

Exactly like "Freddi banana" could be a common a basjoo.

New name implies new buyers !

Phil

Interesting !

I have just posted a thread to evaluate this company before ordering.
Have you got an ordering experience with them ?
I notice many musas on their website have the same picture (for example : dwarf green and dwarf brazilian) and some have strange pictures (dwarf namwah with red PS).

I haven't bought from them, but I have no reason to doubt them. The thing that amazes me are the prices! nearly 30 Euros plus postage for a 20cm plant is very very expensive. Having said that the selection is very extensive and pretty unique in Europe. The only way to find out how good they are is to buy a plant.

That's right !

The prices are very high.
My guess is that this company is only a reseller.
My 2 cents that their musa come from Achim's bananenshop 300 km away from their location.....

Hum !

PS : they never answer to a mail.
