Re: gophers

I tried all that in Santa Barbara. For me trapping was very easy but the are rodents and screw like hell. Solution, move to Hawaii. We don't have gophers. No I just need to deal with the mongoose.

Re: From Chicago to Hawaii - Bananewbie

Aloha!
You will love Hawaii over Chicago. I moved to the Big Island last year. You can grow almost anything. Be careful of Banana Bunchy Top Virus. Look it up. It's nasty!!
Happy gardening.

I battled gophers daily when I lived in Santa Barbara. It looks like rot and not a vermin. You have nothing to lose to try what Dan is suggesting. I have seen some amazing come backs from bananas....

Re: What did you plant today (bananas)?

It took over a month for them to email me back. That's not good customer service. I'm not their competition.

Re: help! Is this Bunchy Top Virus???

I agree with Gabe. Good luck contacting Andy at Aloha Tropicals. He takes your money and then disappears! A few of us have had no response from him in the past.

Tanee is a seeded banana. I just love the variegation. The ginger has yellow flowers. It's my favorite ginger.

Re: A few variegated plants

I was never able to identify the seeds on other flowers from the bird. The large bird has bigger seeds.
