Re: An Update Of My Latest Nana Plants 2018!

So basically the Pinch a Penny sand is twice the price? Hector told me the silica sand in the link above is what he uses.

Re: An Update Of My Latest Nana Plants 2018!

HMelendez, another question about the sand. Where do you find yours and what are the best deals for quantity/price/bulk? I saw this on HomeDepot, but it doesn't seem like coarse...

Re: DIY Biochar

Wow you did this inside your house? I'm hesitant to do this where I live for fear my neighbors will report me to the HOA when they see billows of smoke making BioChar. Hell, I use my Weber grill...

25 pound bag of Sul-Po-Mag fertilizer hardened to solid block?

I bought two of these figuring they were going to be around for a couple of years to use for all the bananas I have going on. I opened one package and it is in a zip lock bag but after using it 3...

Re: Foliar Spray Mixes for Bananas

I'll have to check out caterpillar killer. My one Hua Moa has holes in an unfurled cigar leaf. Hopefully it is not a banana weevil...

Re: An Update Of My Latest Nana Plants 2018!

One more thing HMelendez, maybe I should have PMed you instead of posting here, but for the sake of other people wanting to make these expandable domes I figured it is relevant to the thread. Best I...

Re: An Update Of My Latest Nana Plants 2018!

Is it completely sealed, ie. any leakage?

Clear packing tape or scotch tape?

Also what's the best way to cut it so they stack? Using a box cutter blade?

Does the second tier stack without...

Re: An Update Of My Latest Nana Plants 2018!

Ok, well I must have missed or didnt read yet in that lengthy thread, that you used your own soiless mix of sphagnum peat moss, perlite and silica sand. I was under the impression you used ONLY 100%...

Re: Dwarf Iholena bent at right angle cut or not?

SDDarkman, wow that's a shame about Agristarts doing that. Seems it would put uneeded stress on such a young plantlet that is pretty delicate at that stage.

Re: Dwarf Iholena bent at right angle cut or not?

I did get the smaller Dwarf Iholena repotted in a 3 gallon container and layed it sideways, so now it is pointing straight up. I just didn't know if having part of the p-stem buried like this, could...

Re: Dwarf Iholena bent at right angle cut or not?

Sarah I thought about that, but I'd need quite a large pot wide enough to be able to lay it sideways for it to be upright. May be possible to put this in a 3 gallon container to make that happen,...

Re: Dwarf Iholena bent at right angle cut or not?

Thanks for the response Sarah. Things are still growing here in Florida. The stem is kind of puny since I never repotted it over the summer. It was stuck in a 4" pot that tipped over in my lanai,...

Re: An Update Of My Latest Nana Plants 2018!

HMelendez, also how do you make those clear dome extensions? Do you just buy the dome and cut out the top to stack them? How do you seal it so water doesn't evaporate through the cracks?

Re: An Update Of My Latest Nana Plants 2018!

HMelendez, I haven't read the entire thread but the last page 5 and page 1. I'm still confused how these plants will grow in 100% pool silica sand. Are you supplying all of the nutrients via...

Dwarf Iholena bent at right angle cut or not?

I bought 2 Dwarf Iholena banana plants from SDDarkman back in March of '18. During the summer it tipped over and started growing up, so now that I repotted it, it's almost at a right angle. Should...

Re: MRFC Rare Fruit Tree Sale

So these are meant to be just decorative covers for black nursery pots?

I purchased a few large containers that were made from resin/plastic and have no holes and the pots themselves seem more like double walled plastic so if I were to drill holes in the bottom the water...
