Re: Bananas in the Arabian desert

Glad you're coming home.
Think about your plantations you'll be growing by next year! That Qatar rock is just to tough to grow anything in. Good to have the pots and some good soil.
Good luck...

Re: Question about plant transfer

I would find a place in your home for the winter.

Re: My First Nana

You are correct, commercial growers take the bananas when they are green. And you will have to do the same. If you take them now, you will be taking all peeling. The plants leaves needs the sun...

Re: My First Nana

When the flower emerges then turns down, it's usually only a couple of days till you see the first bananas. If you look super closely, you may actually see them now :)
Hopefully you're in a warm...

Re: Siam Ruby Problems

I get the mites on my Elephant Ears. For some reason, none on the nanners.
