Re: Biggest basjoos ever

That's so interesting! Why is the parking lot one so much smaller than the backyard one?

I have twice gotten basjoos to plant at my parents' house, and both times they died when I planted them in...

Re: Mekong Giant vs Basjoo

Thanks! Where I'm thinking of planting it, I'm not too concerned about the runners in part maybe because I doubt they will survive if I'm not mulching over them but that's good to know...

Re: Viente Cohol vs Patupi/Kokopo for Zone 6b or 5a Patio Plant for Fruiting

Thanks. I've been reading through your backlog of posts trying to learn as much as I can!

I see my hope for a single summer fruiting was overly optimistic, but I'm now cautiously optimistic that my...

Re: Mekong Giant vs Basjoo

Is there a thread where you covered the characteristics? I went looking back through 2-3 years of your posts but I'm not sure if I saw anything specifically on that!

Re: Viente Cohol vs Patupi/Kokopo for Zone 6b or 5a Patio Plant for Fruiting

When you say "shutdown," what do you mean? Pause growth?

In the case where I bring it to my parents' place in NH, it is above 50F most nights (but not necessarily all nights) by Memorial Day and...

Re: Does anyone know what Logees is selling as their Dwarf Lady Finger?

Got it thanks. That's disappointing I already own a SDC and a Truly Tiny (even smaller SDC) from them. The video made it look like a true ladyfinger dessert banana. Oh well. I'll keep it in...

Re: Is the clear liquid that comes out of the sides of the *leaves* banana sap?

Thanks. I actually haven't had much experience with sap relatively new to the banana game. This looked like water, but it felt/smelled a little off, so I was just being cautious. But after doing...

Is the clear liquid that comes out of the sides of the *leaves* banana sap?

Hi all —

Re: minimum temp for overwintering in a pot?

Gotcha. I could definitely leave it in the basement away from the window, then, because it doesn't get below 32 or above 50. I didn't / don't fully understand the dormancy.

Re: minimum temp for overwintering in a pot?

Yes, it's a beautiful plant, maybe the one that has really done the best of the 5-6 container ones I have going. It's thrived on this sunny deck in a 5 gallon bucket,...
