Re: Winter report

Enjoy. We've been running low/mid 60's this week here in NorCal. I know our neighbor's in SoCal have been 70's. And sunny of course :)

Re: Winter report

Looks like a solid setup. If you're just using Xmas lights however, that may not be enough. I know most years the ground will freeze solid several inches down.

Re: Bananas in the Pacific Northwest?

Here in NorCal we get cold nights as well, however we have a much longer growing season with warmer temps.

Re: Winter protection?

I have these already (bought from you :) ). I was just curious about how the plant gets energy with no more leaves?

Winter protection?

With the cooler nights starting to set in, I had a couple of questions how people are protecting their bananas that will not ripen before the cold weather arrives.

We normally get a couple of good...

Re: Musa Ice Cream Blue Java grow and taste report

It would be nice if they could just make it simple to attach pics here. I'm not sure why they make it so difficult?

I just use a 3rd party site and post the link.

Re: How Well do Banana Plants Grow in California without Care?

As Richard so precisely said. They would be history fast without irrigation. Super hot, and extremely dry, humidity as well as precipitation.

Re: Patiently Waiting on Bananas

The weather when it gets above 90F slows things down, but they still chug along. My guess is it's still a little too young. I know here in zone 9b they take close to 18 months to flower.

Re: Houston, we have a flower!

Thanks. For the life of me, I've never been able to post pics to this site lol.
I'll give her more water. It always closes the leaves mid aft here with our 90F+ scorching days.

Re: Please identify - might be about to flower!

That's amazing you got it to flower in Toronto. Will you overwinter it indoors to try to actually get an edible banana next year?

Re: Please identify - might be about to flower!

The P stem and the leaves look too skinny to be a dwarf Orinico. The last picture looks like it's flowering. I can't tell what you have there.

Re: Houston, we have a flower!

That's encouraging. Last winter I didn't lose any leaves until that stupid freak cold spell that came late January. It's always warm here until at least late Oct in Livermore.

Re: musa basjoo New

I have a pup that's on it's 3rd leaf in ground, and it's only now I'm starting to give it some liquid feed. It's around 40cm/1.5ft tall.

I still wouldn't go crazy on the watering, even though...
