Re: Southern Banana Fruitung Forecast 2019

Each of my neighbors had a rack. I only had tissue cultures. Hoping for this fall. So far, everything is shooting to the sky.

Smile Re: Growing bananas in a conservatory

A fan blowing over the water will increase the evaporation rate adding the humidity you need.
Adding some ventilation or shade will also decrease heat gain and remove excessive heat.

Re: Tissue Culture Problem Question

Theres a chance they could be detrimental off-types, if from Agri-Starts, this would not be unheard of as they seem to do almost no quality control for off-types.

Re: When to take blue java outside

It’s all about ground temps. When soil temps about 3” down reach close to 45f-50f they will wake up or grow! Of course the warmer it is the better. A few weeks of very slow growth isn’t going to make...

Re: When to take blue java outside

No. Bananas are typically a tropical fruit. Some will die if it's in the 50's. many will die or get damaged in the 40's.
Depending on size and when they were planted of course.

For a young plant to...

Re: The Banana Knife-- A Great American Tool

I've got an antique banana knife. I'm Not sure who makes it. The Maker's mark is worn off. It looks like the Hibbard Spencer Bartlett & Co. knife. It's about 10" long in total.

Re: The Banana Knife-- A Great American Tool

I tried but they're too short to be multi purpose. I found a long heavy blade serrated bread knife works great for all banana chores.

I got mine in a thrift store for a dollar.

Cool find. Has anyone used a linoleum knife to remove a hand of bananas?

If you have the camera running for long enough you might get a good picture of The Chupacabra.
