Re: Free Variegated Florida

So carefully looking at your posts it looks like you bought a french

Re: Free Variegated Florida

banana plants that aren't really...

Re: Super Red Variegate?

I found them difficult also. They seem to require a lot of warmth and
do not like coolness and with low light and under fluorescent light, the plant
will be all green. :2722:

We have very limited resources for banana plants here in Canada

Re: Musa basjoo sunburned...

If leaves are turning red to brown then it's just that it hasn't been acclimated
to full sun yet. if they are just folding up that is just a normal reaction to the
intense sun and heat and they will...

Re: Greetings from WV

If you want to try Musa Basjoo, it really is a very hardy banana. I am
a bit confused about your zone, it seems to have quite a range.
If you are more in a zone 5a, Don't try and leave your Basjoos...

Re: Super Red Variegate?

No, this is a good example of why you shouldn't believe everything
you read. That is a mistake in the listing. That it simply just a Siam
Ruby, and will not be any shorter or redder than any one...

Re: Super Red Variegate?

That's a Siam Ruby. Better off to buy one in the USA.
The more sun they get the redder the leaves get. so some
plants will look more red than others, depending on how much
sun they are receiving. I...

I used to live in a similar zone as you but I didn't let that stop me. I

Re: Greetings from WV

Welcome back. I also was away for a few years and just recently started
using this site again.
I see you are in a banana unfriendly zone. Was saddened to hear you
were banana-less. :ha:

Re: Musa but not sure which one. Anyone can help?

The Truly tiny banana plant is a super dwarf Cavendish sold under the name "Truly tiny".

not get any taller than 3' Depending on...

Re: Musa but not sure which one. Anyone can help?

It definitely looks like a super dwarf Cavendish. Most, if not all the super
dwarfed banana plants that only get to 36" tall are Super dwarf Cavendish.
Sellers come up with different names to call...

I know there is insulated pots, but they are more expensive than

Re: San Diego cool tolerant dwarf bananas

I would plant a Musa Mahoi, and or a Musa Enano Gigante. Both of these
are plenty cold hardy enough to live in your zone and will produce edible
fruit. They also will stay at a manageable height for...

Yup, unfortunately ebay doesn't seem to have the proper people in place

that are not quite so obvious though. One...

Re: The Effect of Gibberellic Acid (GA) Sprays on M. 'Truly Tiny'

Beware of Fake Plumerias on that well known auction site.

It seems there is at least one seller that is milking his pics for all they
are worth.

If you think you are going to get the plant depicted in the pic on the
site you might want to think again. It...
