Re: Musa ornata "Milky Way" heading toward extinction.

Re: Looking for real Blue Java Ice Cream

You can see my big stand in the front corner of this pic. These came from Mark Collins around 2004. I'll get some pics of the young plants coming up right now.

Re: Musa ornata "Milky Way" heading toward extinction.

Mine has started blooming this week. I acquired my plant from Mark Collins in 2004 if I recall correctly.

Darn 5 year old labels!

Well I have a plant I received from Mark Collins about 5 or 6 years ago during a visit. It's an Alpinia sp. and my tag has since faded but it is now in bloom. Let's see if the pics work.

Re: Sprouting Ginger

Just plant it about an inch or inch and half in the soil and within 3 to 4 weeks you will probably have plants shooting up.

Re: Sprouting Ginger

You should have no problem sprouting it. Depending on which type of market you purchase from the majority of the time it's going to be Zingiber officinale.

Anyone from Waimanalo?

I am curious if there might be any members here from Waimanalo? I am interested in buying some Globba hybrids from someone there that cannot ship to the mainland.

Alpinia hybrid seed pods

My current project has been an Alpinia hybrid. I crossed Alpinia henryi and Alpinia tonkinensis. These were appealing as a hybrid since the shells on each plant are opposite in coloration as well...

It's not a Musa but my Ensete superbum in the yard looks blueish when compared to the other Bananas.

Re: Banana from Fairchild

Just to add a little more info. It was grown from seeds planted a year ago and it's currently about 4 foot tall. Is it possibly Musa balbisiana var. liukiuensis?
