Re: How to post images in your threads

I gave up attempting any photos here. Making them smaller... whatever. Pointless. Never seems to work. I have plenty of pics on my FB page if anyone is ever bored. It's my name as it is here.

Re: Gros Michel

It's been a while.

The GMs I have left are still alive but looking awful. Hopefully they'll do better this spring and won't get smashed again.

Re: Leaves?

Correct. At some point the oldest/older leaves will lose their integrity and start their process of falling off the plant. You can leave them or remove them if you don't like how they look. It is...

Re: What should I do?

One of the four bananas I found after Isaac looks like it went through a furnace. What's wrong with this banana again?

Re: cut or not to cut

I recently harvested some Orinoco that had the flower still on and one of them weighed almost 200 lbs. With exception to one that broke off, they all had their flowers still on (there are 2 more I...

Re: Hurricane Isaac vs Nanna's

I managed to find 4 of the 12 or so little Gros Michel and Double Mahoi bananas I lost in Isaac's storm surge (they were at my father-in-law's house, up high but not high enough). I'm going to go...

Re: Gros Michel

The Gros Michel (and Dble Mahoi) I got from Terry (Chance1945) are possibly all gone thanks to a higher than we thought it would be storm surge from Hurricane Isaac.

I was going to plant two in the ground this month but upon viewing the list I think I will not bother.

Re: Harvested Orinoco fruit!!

Orinoco taste great when they're ripe, much better than a Grand Nain. I've had them cooked. They are way better just ripe.

Re: Mini-super-hyper-dwarf ?

Re: tall red cold damage

The Black Thai is exposed. No protection. It gets sun but not full sun. It competes with Ornata and a Saba. Soon it will be getting much less sun as it isn't coming so over the middle of the yard...

Re: Tropical Ohio

It's not amazing as it should be, having one do well in Ohio, but I've never been able to get a Maurelli to grow worth a damn. Sweet yard though! Nice!

Re: Gallons of Water for a Mature Banana Plant

Re: Plant size and leaning

Found the video. It doesn't show the banana leaning but you can see the elephant ears lean. Same thing, different plant:

Re: Plant size and leaning

Bananas in the ground are going to lean to some extent. There is no point in straightening them out in regards of their search for sunlight. I have a Orinoco under a Live Oak that is leaning at, er,...
