Re: The race is on Ensete glaucum

I cut off all the leaves except for the top one that was still a roller. I don't drain my naners, but I do store 'em standing up on the floor. Never noticed any moisture. My bloomer is 3 years old.

Re: The race is on Ensete glaucum

Mike-where are you located? I'm in zone 7a and I dig up my glauca and store it bare root leaning against a wall in the warm basement. Must be OK since this year it's now blooming.

I can't say for sure but it looks really nice Mike! I didn't know Glaucum likes cooler weather. That is good to know. I have some I plan to put out next year. I'll be currious to see what people have...

Re: Here we go again!

Thanks Mike, I'd love to get a pup if you decide to dig them up. I have several Basjoo, so I could send you a few pups next Spring if you'd like.

Re: Ae Ae 's first pup

Thanks, Mike, for the comments on the soil mix. What sort of fertilizer program do you use? Have you ever tested the pH of your mix?

Thanks,
