...If you absolutely HAVE to have the right banana variety, not some mislabeled fake.

If in December you check your plants every day looking to see new growth

As you drive around, when you notice a 'nanner, you find that you actually can identify most types, and you even get pretty good at determining if they have bunchy top or are just being neglected.

If you can't throw away your extra banana plants and dug up pups even though there is no possibility of planting them, selling them, giving them away, or producing viable fruit in the pot! :ha:

Haha... "If you spent two days reading through the thread about 'you might be a banana fiend'..."

If you take your first ever flight on a helicopter and spot a banana in someone's backyard and ask the pilot to "go see".

If you go to the Ripley's Believe It or Not museum and take more pictures of the bananas growing outside as landscaping rather than all the exhibits inside.

If you're convinced that certain bananas prefer certain blankies to keep warm during the winter, and you know which blankies "belong" to which bananas. (Frank always has to have the red polar fleece!)

Haha.

My neighbor about 10 houses down has a +3' banana growing in a 5 gal bucket sitting in their front yard. Not knocking on their door and telling them they should get a larger pot is killing me.

You may be a banana hobbyist if ......

1. you buy so much fertilizer that homeland security has an eye on you .

2. You look at your plants 2-3 times a day to see how much they've grown since the last time you checked .

3. you've ever worked this problem : Dinner out 15.87
Ramen noodles - .12
total left for plant purchase 15.75

4 . Your kids were upset more than once because the "pup" you told your spouse you were bringing home was musa and not canine .

5. While plant shopping , your spouse becomes frustrated and exclaims "All you care about are bananas ." to which you reply " Not true ! I have several ensetes and 15 or so aroids !" .

6.The friends/relatives who were at your place for christmas drive around the block trying to find your house in june saying "That could'nt possibly be the same place".

7.Your "other than banana" plants (lawn ,azalea ....)grow less than 6 " per day and you wonder what the problem is .

8. Your friends tell you that you should get some parrots or monkeys .

9. You read the (entire)wiki more than once .

10. You've ever wanted to move further south just to be able to garden the way you would like .

11. You read about global warming , freak out a little , then calm down when you think "I wonder what my zone will be ten years from now ?" .

12. Your lawn is disappearing quickly with the onset of new planting beds .

13 .Your neihbors often say "they're shoveling another pile of something over there!" or "what's that smell???".

14.You spend 300 bucks to drive a few states over and visit for a few hours with a fellow grower and trade naners that would have only cost $8-$20 to ship.

:bananarow: :choochoo:
You guys keep this goin' ! It should be a lot of fun !

It is great to feel the original fun of this post ....
We all have it...And have done it.

.....if you forget your password now and then. But still remember to take care of the naners. Still cleaning up the mess Irma made out of my mats. Up to the sixth big cartload of busted up pstems and lost fruit bunches now. The city is great about hauling the stuff away every Sat AM.

Hoping 2018 is better.

BTW----- the new Sweet Tart mango I planted this year has new shoots on the branches. Looks like it will make it. Had to replace the 11 yr old Cogshall that Irma demolished. Not planning on planting any more 45 gallon rootballs this year. I hope!!!
