Re: White cotton under leaf, leaves

Looks like white fly. Soapy water and neem will work. If you can bring a hose to it and wash it off that will work great. They are attracted to dry hosts.

Re: Aloha

I like to leave the mother stem to provide energy to the keiki. If I can I try to cut the rack at the very top. Then when it gets a bit older it can be pulled out.

Or with a different practice you...

Re: Can you confirm my Suspicion: Black Sigatoka

Re: Can you confirm my Suspicion: Black Sigatoka

I use neem pellets that are 5-1-2 that help against that sort of thing. My main trouble are corm weevils(and pigs). It doesn't seem to completely keep them away. I hate to drench the soil and kill...

Re: Looking for Gros Michel/Bluefields in Kauai & Arizona

They are kind of gross, no? Don't they taste just like a Cavendish? Apple is far better eating quality on my opinion.

Re: Proper leaf cutting

It can also be caused by a deficiency. I dont recall which one. One of the tissue culture plants I put in the ground is slightly doing this. It should adjust itself over time. Gave it a large dose if...

He's in Austin. He has a pretty good idea of what a banana needs as far as care. I think he would have to try both for starters to be sure they would survive in ground. I think getting quality...

Re: Effect of Post Shooting Bunch Spray of Chemicals on Bunch Characters ...

The idea is to ferment the bananas due to the high potassium content. Cannabis growers go bonkers over nanner ferments.

Re: Foliar Spray Mixes for Bananas

We make a FPJ with Crotaleria that works really well. Sugar and plant material is not only safe but easy to make. Use banana or other fruit for a flowering FPJ.


Good luck.

What about natural altenatives such as FPJ? I prefer not to use harsh things in the yard.

Re: need help after 2 year break

Or you wait for them to grow a bit and then try what...
