Default Help I need a megafarm or something




So this thing is getting a bit bigger then I thought it would, does anyone have a megafarm they want to get rid of or know of a place that still has one?

Is that in soil or hydro media? Also what variety is it? Maybe a super dwarf of some type? Either way its gonna need some more room!

You can split your plants.
I would keep the small plant and pot the larger one .

The Hydroponic thread might help as well as youtube threads.
These plants are easy to grow......you have to manage the size to about a 1/3rd of the parent size....but that is subjective to a growers preference.
Mine were in hydro for 3 years.
Awesome project to observe.

It's a Super Dwarf Cavendish that I got from here a couple years ago, already have split it once, which is why I have 5 of them now since the one that I moved now has 2 more, didn't want to split it since I want it to fruit and didn't want to disrupt it this year, other then getting it into another pot which the megafarm is no longer around so need to find a alternative, or a second hand one. Not sure if it's going to be easier to piece something together or just print one.

Sorry.....even if your plant did flower and fruit in the next FIVE years it is not worth the 400.00 bucks you put into it...


Hate to be the Hydro buzzkill.......

I don't really count the cost of nutrients since I would have them around anyways and I only do a water change once a month, same for the coffee so usage is low. Granted the pot is a bit more then a decent house plant pot so over all not really that costly for a house plant that might make food someday. House if solar and runs on rain water so water bill and electric are a 0.

My car habit cost me way more.

"Worth it" doesn't apply sometimes Mike! Most of my "hobbies" will never look good on a balance sheet! In fact people often make remarks when they see my banana plants, and how much work I put into them, that "you know, bananas are only like 99cents a pound at the store?" Its the process that I love! I KNOW its the same for you, as I cringe when I look at the amount of work you put into winterizing your plants every fall!
The day that I have to start being profitable in my interests, is the day I have to give up Gardening, fishing, and hell lets face it.. being married
