Re: Pisang Klotek

Correct. I got mine from hydroid. I think I may be too far from the Gulf to successfully get fruit on this one unless we have an extremely mild winter. I did have it in a bad spot in my yard and...

My banana plant list

Been a long time since I have posted. Tons of work, both at home and on the road, so I haven't been as involved in the garden as most times. Did a detailed check on the garden today and my list is a...

Re: Alocasia Colocasia aroids. Etc.

Wow! Do you find that all the blossoms and then seeds reduce the size of the plant? We chop off flowers from our colocasias (the actually can work as cut flowers - same with philodendron - a wild...

Re: Alocasia Colocasia aroids. Etc.

The Thai Giants have been reclassified as Leucocasia Gigantea. I had a couple I wintered over 5 years, lost one last winter but had a couple smaller ones I started form seed that year. Started 20...

Re: Alocasia Colocasia aroids. Etc.

We have lots of pups on the Thai Giant - and very tough they are - maybe took 6 or 7 from a couple of them, and all survived (left those very close to the mama plant).

Re: Harvest? 32F-34F tonight

I still hope that mine will plump and ripen after the leaves burn but have not had that good luck so far. Maybe this year as I have four bunches hanging. I'll look at them and evaluate on Thursday.

Re: Harvest? 32F-34F tonight

Re: Harvest? 32F-34F tonight

If you loose the leaves and they have not fully plumped they will not ripen. IMHO

If they are fully plumped they can usually withstand several hours at 32 but no more at least that is my experience...

Re: Harvest? 32F-34F tonight

In a bag, you should be fine. Even if the plant loses it's leaves you can harvest the bunch.
