Re: Joshua tree?

The temperatures won't be a problem at all. It's just very susceptible to disease from excess moisture in the east.

Re: Micronutrient/Trace Minerals

Very little! It really depends on what you soil already contains which you can find via a soil test. I would highly doubt you need more the fertilizer contains.

It's not a palm - likely Dracaena.

Re: Seaweed?

Are you sure it's seaweed in the river? It might be algae. As long as it isn't one of the toxic types, you should be fine. Definitely loaded with nutrients!

Re: Basjoo Sprouting Question

The corm is the stem. As long as the corm isn't damaged, it can bring up new growth. (they are protected from the growth though)

What you see above the ground are just leaves.

Re: Brand new to bananas / Basjoo

You can plant them right in the ground. Just make sure the area is well draining.

Re: makeing home made soil mix

Try picking up Fafard #2 potting mix. You won't find it at normal consumer stores but professional horticulture suppliers. Some garden center may carry it. Pro-mix BX is also a good mix.

Less than it's worth. You're better off selling it yourself. Do you have a coin shop nearby?

Re: Genetically modified plants hold the key to saving the banana industry

If it's covering the pay of 12 scientists for a year on top of equipment, it's not a lot.

Re: Which cooking oils do you use?

...or the truth! It's amazing how far false information can spread! If you used the same logic, eating cherries, apples, pears... will all harm you because they contain cyanide(similar compound)!

Re: Which cooking oils do you use?

I like Canola. It's one of the healthiest oils, tastes good and it's inexpensive.

Re: mold on a maurelii? And amazing basjoo growth!

If you have a cross space, it may be a better...

For hosts, you can go with either shared hosting or a VPS. Shared hosting generally costs $5-10 a month but it can slow down and go out due to the other websites on the server. A VPS gives you a...
