Re: Search for pups (smaller species, for 3 degrees C and up)

Re: Found a seed in a Namwa nana

I ate Michel bananas that produce seeds. Not many, maybe 1-3 each or none. They are used for breeding.
This is possible with AA group because the parent Musa acuminata has seeds.

Re: tissue culture jar question

That's a nice piece of equipment. Looks like you are planning big jobs.

Re: tissue culture jar question

Re: Can I get some advice about this Cavendish, which has just flowered?

Re: Musa (AA group) 'Kluai Leb Mu Nang'

This is not Pisang Mas or Kluai kui, those are more round.
Leb Mu Nang is smaller no more than an inch thick and is very flagrant. They are sold at a higher price then others.
