Re: Zone 8: can I order bananas now, or do I need to wait?

He sure has been! I was planning on ordering from Ty this spring, too! Also, don't forget sddarkman619. If you're looking for dwarf varieties, he has a Dwarf Iholena that I got over Thanksgiving...

Re: Want feedback on a website I am considering ordering from.

Obdiah,

I'm so glad that you told me you don't necessarily get what you order. I Need to get what I order, because I am only interested in dwarf varieties. I live near Fort Worth, so I am going to...

Re: Zone 8: can I order bananas now, or do I need to wait?

No, I don't think there were any freezing temperatures when I ordered. I think if we watch the weather and order on a Monday, when there are no freezing temperatures in the forecast, we might be...

Want feedback on a website I am considering ordering from.

I know that it is important to be careful where we order from, so I wanted to get some feedback from you all. Has anybody ordered from bananaplants.net? If so, would you order from there, again? ...

Re: Zone 8: can I order bananas now, or do I need to wait?

I ordered a Dwarf Namwa and a Dwarf Iholena from sddarkman619 over Thanksgiving and they're doing just fine. I am considering ordering a Novak and a Dwarf Green in the next week or so. Maybe we...

Re: Help! Normal Shipping Stress or Disease?

First of all, thanks so much for all the help that you guys have been so generous in giving me. Now, I've got a couple of more question for you all. I kept fig trees this summer, and I learned that...

Re: Help! Normal Shipping Stress or Disease?

Kanana, I understand how frustrating it can be to get less than you paid for, since I just went through all of this with my Wellspring bananas, and they weren't even worth sending back. However, I...

Re: Help! Normal Shipping Stress or Disease?

Thanks so much, Botanical Bryce!

If I work on nursing these two little guys back to health, will that be risking that every banana plant I get from now on could get the same disease?

Joy Re: Help! Normal Shipping Stress or Disease?

Thanks, again. Okay, I will be careful not to overwater them. I've only watered them one time, since I received them in the mail. I just soaked them down with neem, so I'm sure that will help,...

Re: Help! Normal Shipping Stress or Disease?

This is what Wellspring said, "Hello, This is not a disease. It is happening because at some point the banana stem got wet and stayed wet. If kept dry, new leaves will not have the discoloration and...

Re: Help! Normal Shipping Stress or Disease?

Thanks much for your help. I've messaged Wellspring twice, now. I expect to eventually hear back from them, because I placed the order through eBay.

Re: Help! Normal Shipping Stress or Disease?

I also got a lemongrass in that order (it looks just fine), but I already took it out to my plant stand in the garage. If this is a disease, then it looks like it may have had a chance to spread...

Re: Help! Normal Shipping Stress or Disease?

Should I dispose of the plant before it spreads? The Dwarf Orinoco doesn't have any spots, yet, but it was in the same drip tray when I watered them and they were in the same shipping box. I wonder...

Re: Help! Normal Shipping Stress or Disease?

Sorry about that, I had to learn how to post the pictures. I'm in zone 8 close to Fort Worth, but I will keep the banana plants inside, until winter is over. When spring comes, I plan on keeping...
