Re: How long do most bananas take to ripen?

Thanks for the help, guys..........

No, Mskitty, that's not a tarp, it's a poly, portable greenhouse that I use as an outdoor sunroom and keep it heated above 65f constantly.

Re: greenhouse storage

Zac,

I second Mike for the most part - I'm just a little scared to let the temps dip that low.. I maintained night temps of about 60f during Jan/Feb in my greenhouse - It was a bit expensive. I used...

Re: Picture of my Dwarf Cavendish in NY

Thanks, Anna :) .... I'm totally convinced now that this banana is not a DC at all.... I really wanna try and identify it - I'll take some close-up pics and see if anyone can possibly help me.
