Re: Brian's Botanicals Mekong Giant

This exact plant was shipped to me this spring. It has grown 9 feet of pseudostem. It's taller with the leaves. It is outgrowing some basjoo even in its first year.

Re: Birth of a New Hybrid Musa: Musa sp. aff. aurantiaca (Trebrown seeds) x velutina

Totally cool! Go Frank! I wish I could make some cross with Velutina. I think that's the one that would definitely make a great cross with something else. How does one decide whether to make Velutina...

Re: Shortest flowering ornamental?

Velutina is short at 6 feet overall height.

Re: Musa Velutina seed mystery

I had year old velutina seed sitting in my garage. I sowed it in my flower bed this spring and all the seed germinated! Mother Nature is amazing. Much better than I could do!
