A friend asked if I knew what this is

And I don't. He planted a seed and this is what grew. Was it from something he ate? Maybe. I've found what appear to be avocado seeds in his lawn; he doesn't eat those but IME squirrels drag all...

Re: Hi I'm new

Since you have plants growing and are obviously very interested in bananas, edit your profile to say where you live. Why? So members near to you can give you great advice about your specific area....

Re: cold hardy ornamental banana trees atlanta GA.

Oh dear, Rob, I wasn't questioning you at all. I was wondering if the new "guy" was trying to drum up business here. Some folks wander in here and join thinking this is a wonderland for quick sales....

Re: cold hardy ornamental banana trees atlanta GA.

Great question, Rob. If that's all you have, I suspect there are enough existing members to handle requests for the non edible/cold hardy nanners at a better price than you probably offer; this forum...

Re: What is this plant?

I got one kinda on Wednesday. One tiny root attached to not much plant but I'll see if she'll grow.

I'm taking a shovel next week. Why? Because someone is dumping sand in the area and burying the...

Re: What is this plant?

MJC, get thee to the member introduction section and let us welcome you! My unexpected sweetheart is from the Weirton area. How we landed, independently of each other, in FL is astounding.

What is this plant?

I've been watching the "weeds" at a flea market in Cocoa. Lovely morning glories plus a few others. But this sword type plant has fascinated me for weeks. Today we both saw something very odd. Ron...

Re: What besides stray cats eat cat food at night in FL?

I have a temporary cat of sorts. Someone put it in my neighbor's car when she was grocery shopping. She took it to her vet to determine age (6 weeks or so) and to get fleas treated. She has a dog and...

Re: Banana Beer

Thanks for the heads up! I guess all of those DMs I saved will become something less intoxicating. Shame nobody has IDed your beer banana plant...sounds like a keeper whose pups should be shared...

Re: What besides stray cats eat cat food at night in FL?

Yes, rats love dog poop. When I lived in MD on the cusp of DC my neighbor had 3 dogs (illegal without a kennel permit) who pooped in her small yard. She never had any issues with their leavings. I,...

Re: Banana for east central Florida

I'm a bit north of you in Titusville. I've harvested bunches from Dwarf Nanwahs and Raji Puri which I didn't leave in pots. (Potted musas aren't happy mostly due to my neglect but very much alive.) I...

Re: (CA) Where to order Blue Java/Ice Cream bananas

I'm sure there are others but I know that there's a member in CA who grows them; I don't know if she would part with ripe fruit so will not mention her forum name. Perhaps she'll see this and choose...

Of course there are; this is FL! I'm not that far from you but rarely tackle Orlando traffic to visit Winter Haven unless I have a really, really, really good reason. I believe there are 1 or 2...

Re: I'm curious... how do you feel about vaccines? OH SNAP!! hot to the touch. :)

I had all of mine. I was 1 year too old for MMR; I got measles in college (1972). Which one? Dr., standing 10 feet from me, said there are 500 varieties and I caught one. When I was pregnant with DS...

Re: Rooting pineapple

It's been may years since I potted one up from water roots and it mattered so I don't know. What I mean is that I get tops easily here which I've rooted in water and also just stuck in the dirt. I...

Re: FL plant peeps--What are those rugged plants that resemble saw palmetto

Sadly some of these are in areas where I can't really chop or dig. I've been working on one for a year. I cut it back a few times and each time treated it with concentrated glyosphate; right now it...

Re: New to Bananas.org

Welcome neighbor--well kinda.

I'm hoping to get many of my "mysteries" in the ground soon but even in pots they're doing well. I know Dwarf Cavendish is supposed to be very cold intolerant but I...

Re: SOS: HOA wants my banana TREES removed

I'm sorry if I implied they required organic; they don't. Indeed, they don't really restrict the types of herbicides/fertilizers/insecticides but do expect timing and amounts to be what I consider...

Re: SOS: HOA wants my banana TREES removed

Phooey, I doubt I'd pass their test. I'm not an organic gardener nor am I at all organized; what grows at my place does despite my "ignorance" of them. I'm admittedly lazy and cheap so I try to let...

Re: SOS: HOA wants my banana TREES removed

When I worked as a landscaper in Ohio several years ago, I was sent to the HOAs we "weeded" to do my thing. (No, I didn't stoop down and grab anything--weeding was spraying.) And I did some pruning....
