Re: I'm going to The Big Island!

I'm sure Rob would love a visit. I would have you visit my place but it's not really worth a trip out at this point.

I am not sure where any farms are though.

Good luck.

Re: White cotton under leaf, leaves

Looks like white fly. Soapy water and neem will work. If you can bring a hose to it and wash it off that will work great. They are attracted to dry hosts.

Re: Aloha

I like to leave the mother stem to provide energy to the keiki. If I can I try to cut the rack at the very top. Then when it gets a bit older it can be pulled out.

Or with a different practice you...

Re: Can you confirm my Suspicion: Black Sigatoka

I use neem pellets that are 5-1-2 that help against that sort of thing. My main trouble are corm weevils(and pigs). It doesn't seem to completely keep them away. I hate to drench the soil and kill...

Re: Looking for Gros Michel/Bluefields in Kauai & Arizona

They are kind of gross, no? Don't they taste just like a Cavendish? Apple is far better eating quality on my opinion.

Re: Proper leaf cutting

It can also be caused by a deficiency. I dont recall which one. One of the tissue culture plants I put in the ground is slightly doing this. It should adjust itself over time. Gave it a large dose if...

He's in Austin. He has a pretty good idea of what a banana needs as far as care. I think he would have to try both for starters to be sure they would survive in ground. I think getting quality...

Re: Effect of Post Shooting Bunch Spray of Chemicals on Bunch Characters ...

Re: Foliar Spray Mixes for Bananas

We make a FPJ with Crotaleria that works really well. Sugar and plant material is not only safe but easy to make. Use banana or other fruit for a flowering FPJ.


Good luck.
