Default Re: Musa ornata "Milky Way" heading toward extinction.

I was at Lue gardens today, the imagination garden area has itinerans burmese blue traveling a long distance 6-8 feet from parent and I saw a small mat of musa ornata milky way. I would post pics but the system says everything was loaded and accepted fine and successful but they never appear. Sorry folks.

I think I was there in 1998. Is that the place with a sign about alligators along the water, and has a big green tree with a LOT of thorns on the trunk?

Or, is it the place with a boardwalk that goes through a waterway with lots of tropical plants?

Hi members,
Seven past years later and I still did not got seeds or cultured tissues of musa ornata "Milk Way" !

Worst is the bad person Amanda (alemily) I asked the person to send me the fresh seeds of "Milky Way", but the person made an excuse by said " I do not ship seeds outside USA"
I got very angry with Amanda and told Amanda about I had been waited for 17 past years for seeds to be available to me and "Milky Way" were the most difficult plants for both USA people and people outside USA, to look for and to get, and Amanda did not listened to me and said the same excuse "I do not ship seeds outside USA"
This upset me very much, after waited for 17 past years for seeds / cultured tissues of "Milky Way" to be available to me.

Extinction is a term for species, not cultivars. Further, seeds of a banana cultivar will not sprout entirely true to type.

If you knew the laws, fees, and fines for exporting plant material from the U.S. perhaps you would not complain.

That's why I labeled the Poncirus trifoliata v. Flying Dragon as "Back Scratchers."

You are right for a change. I had to look it up:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
ex·tinc·tion

/ikˈstiNG(k)SH(ə)n/

noun

1. the state or process of a species, family, or larger group being or becoming extinct.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

But, it is correct to say, "The cultivar will become extinct.", because there is a loophole in the dictionary:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
ex·tinct

/ikˈstiNG(k)t/

adjective

•no longer in existence.
"an extinct language"

Seed for Musa ornata should be fine to send. I checked the MPI Biosecurity Index and they are fine for import into New Zealand. Did you ever manage to get any? Strange that they would not ship seed to you! I'm keen to purchase a pup. I see there is a person on ebay selling seeds as well.

Be careful buying seeds on eBay. Most here in the US are fake!

Rarepalmseeds and Mark Davies are awesome sources for seeds!

I grow Milky Way! It’s finally starting to get ok sized! I plan on planting in the ground here in a month or so. It’s been a slow grower for me!
