Re: bananapups.com, tytailors fe'i aiuri tc's

HI there

I also got one from Ty back in spring of this year. My plant has always been in an airpot when it was outdoors. I brought indoors back in mid October and it has been growing slow -...

Re: USB bug zapper to kill fungus gnats

I totally agree! Sorry to hear you had garden plant losses.

I water the pots about every 10 days sparingly but the bugs still manage to multiply. In the past I have tried gnatrol and yellow...

USB bug zapper to kill fungus gnats

Hi everyone,

I have 6 indoor bananas in 5 gallon pots and no matter what I do, I always seem to get fungus gnats in the soil every year when I bring the plants inside. This is annoying because the...

Re: PATUPI, beautiful bunch & tasting.

Congrats that is an awesome amount of fruit! My patupi really hates being wet so you are lucky it grew so well with 6 mos of rain!

Re: Donetta

This looks totally fine. Great job! There is no need to worry about a few days when the temperature reaches 50 to 60F. Let it stay like that until early April. Then you can lift it to take a peek.

Re: Donetta

Tarp it so mulch stays dry. Wet mulch is bad.

I will do my basjoo in a few weeks. Not that cold here yet...

Re: Donetta

That will be fine. I place pieces of cardboard boxes around the pstems to provide a few inches of air between the stem and the mulch covering. This reduces the chance for mold by not having wet...

Re: Length of Grow Light Use

If your goal is just to 'sustain' the plants until next spring, I think 7 hours will be adequate. I use 8 to 10 hours but I have a 300w LED light that covers a 4'x4' area in my basement. I may get...

Re: Voodoo lily question

Thanks!

I just dug them up yesterday. I had planted six bulbs in spring and now many more small ones as you described. Hopefully the big one will flower!

I rinsed them off and set in my...

Re: Donetta

I think this could be normal with growth close to the corm. I've seen it on smaller plants. It takes time for the growth to turn green.

Re: Donetta

That is 10 to 15 months in the tropics for a bloom. Plus at least 40 more days bloom to harvest in the best case (upwards 6 months). The plants need to produce around 35 leaves before they bloom. ...

Re: Donetta

Mari,
With such low heat and with modest indoor lights, you can sustain the plants and have them create maybe 2 new leaves a month. The new leaves get smaller and less wide the longer they are...

Re: Patupi

I do like this plant even though it has been the most difficult banana that I've grown.

I can imagine that it is probably for all the reasons mentioned. In the summer, some weeks are extremely...

Re: What did you pot today (Bananas)

How large is your patupi? I think you had it for 2 or 3 years now... Do you think it will flower next year?

Re: Donetta

Hi Mari

I have noticed that in my area of Pennsylvania, my nana plants practically stop growing by October. Overnight lows are usually in the 40s by this time. I usually wait a few more weeks and...

Re: What did you pot today (Bananas)

Hi Mike,

Yes, the patupi is very good at pupping. It usually throws several pups right before the main plant dies back! This year I had my plant get 2' tall before that happened. I think it got...

Re: What did you pot today (Bananas)

I just potted these 3 pups earlier this week. Patupi, Veinte cohol, and Dwarf Chamaluco pups. I know it is late in the season and this is probably the last week of warm weather in PA. I hope to...

Re: Asimina Triloba (Paw Paw)

That one on the left is huge!

Has it flowered? Since sunflower is self fertile (I think), it should fruit without a second plant.

Interesting that basjoo seems to be a favorite! Not just my observation :)

I've used seven in the past and may try it again in the future. I have enough neem oil for another year. The beetle...
