Re: Dwarf Cavendish? Or is there any chance it will be tall?

Re: Roadside Fe'i

I have tried Fei but lost mine during a -2C event. They were young though and just 5cm rhizome diameter. Plus that winter was too wet and cool, so don't know if the cold or cool and wet killed the...

Re: Banana planting depth:is it important and do they adjust themselves to their liki

Bananas want well drained soils that are always moist ideally. Wet clay with bad drainage is not good, but clay that drains well and is always moist and rich in organics and minerals, is great. High...

Re: My Musa "Cuba"

Thank you Gabe :)

Re: My Musa "Cuba"

Is this just a M. basjoo or is there a chance it's another species? The seller generally knew his bananas and wasn't trying to scam... but everything can happen

Re: What is this one? Supposedly a rare edible from Cuba

I thought so, that's why I asked... I will just wait for it to flower and I will take it out and give it whole to a friend. I have far too many potted bananas to waiste prime space on it.

Re: What causes this leaf damage?

Thank you very much for your reply!

Mine got it worst on 2 random leafs,not the oldest ones only. But maybe the change to cooler(though still warm) weather contributes to that as well.
