I have whatever variety of Taro that my local Rowe's IGA sells. I bought them, soaked them for a day, and then just planted them in some dirt. Some failed to sprout, and some didn't. I also did this...

Re: Edible Taro Root

On one end there is a growing point. You can cut that off and plant it or you can plant the whole thing. Sometimes if you cut the top off it rots. Sometimes it works. I guess it depends if you want t...

Re: Edible Taro Root

Malanga and eddoes are not varieties. Malanga isn't even taro. Taro is Colocasia and is Asian and Malanga is Xanthosoma and is south American. Some taro varieties are dry soil and others need wet....

Re: Edible Taro Root

Do an internet search for the best varieties.
First I grew this plant as in ornamental on the deck because it looks so much like elephant Ears.
The plant loves growing as a bog plant and takes well...

Re: Pisang Klotek

Akula….my PK struggled the first few years in the winter, so bad I thought it was completely dead, but then somehow it got hardy and started pupping nicely. If I were home am sure I could get it to...

Re: Pisang Klotek

Thanks Hydroid!

Did you get your PK to fruit over there in Gulf Shores? I reviewed all the posts about PK and everybody gives it a thumbs up for taste. Just hope it can flower this year!

Re: Pisang Klotek

Hey Akula, I think Country Boy got his PK from me. I got mine from Charles aka Darkman and he got his from a guy in Florida, maybe they will chime in here. We have PK out here in the Marshall...

Re: Ice Cream/Blue Java banana?

Just curious, does it have a redish colored midrib on the leaves? If it does it could be a namwah,which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Re: What Banana's did I see shopping..

It's really hard to say when they are that small, but it looks pretty Cavendish-y to me. I figure that for most varieties, you won't know until they have fruited, and even then you might not know.

Re: What Banana's did I see shopping..

Should have purple-red midribs. Cigar leaves should also be purplish on the undersides

Re: Identification: What is this?

In my opinion it looks like a Camphor tree. They were introduced from Asia to the US in the 1800s and have become an invasive species where the soils are not to heavy and the winters are mild. Hope...
