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

Re: My Musa "Cuba"

Thank you Gabe :)

Is it worth cultivating for bananas? Do they ever produce enough to be acceptable?

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.

Hello :)

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.

Re: Wintering Potted Bananas

I would cram it in as it is,without cutting anything. The leafs will die off anyway and growth won't be much. So next year it will be even bigger :)
