Re: Banana corm disaster!

Interesting! Was the one in the pic that is starting to hollow out attacked by nematodes?
I couldn't find any evidence of any grubs; even in another banana corm which just started to rot - it had a...

Re: Banana corm disaster!

Plot Twist - I stuck the plants with rotten corms in a bucket of water and the parts that aren't rotten are growing roots. Now if the corm had rotted due to cold or a virus, surely the water would...

Re: Banana corm disaster!

Thank you!
What are the signs? I've noticed they go from growing vigorously to just completely stopping.

I think it must be one of the first two. I did't see any evidence of weevils..

How many Cavendish varieties & their differences are there?

I have some 'Williams' Cavendish plants growing. They have a fairly tight clump and reach about 3m tall. I recently got suckers from someone else's Cavendish and they were far taller (5-6m) and...

Common banana varieties in Hawaii?

I'm off to Oahu and was wondering what the most common banana varieties eaten in Hawaii are and where I can find some of them? (farmers markets or the like?). I'm wondering if GM is available...

Senorita pics

This is my seņorita. It used to have suckers but I removed them. The stem is very red/pink. The leaves are a mess because of a shrub that was removed adjacent to it and it got mangled with it. It has...

Gros Michel Cold Tolerance Pt.2

Hi all

In 2012 I asked about experience with Gros Michel and cold tolerance. I've since grown them in the Sydney area which has a similar climate to Los Angeles but more wet and humid. I've found...

Re: Propping up a fruiting banana tree

In NSW, they use one stake with a horse shoe attached to the top. Not sure how they make it though

Re: Seperated sucker with very little corm - will it survive?

I always found separating suckers fairly easy but this Williams Cavendish is a very tight, deep clump. It was as if the corm didn't expand at all, but rather that the sucker just grew from underneath...

Seperated sucker with very little corm - will it survive?

This Cavendish sucker was seperated from its parent several months ago. It hasn't done anything and has very little corm, but a small amount with a few roots. I am thinking of growing it in a bucket...

Yeah, same here. The climate has changed here. Over the last 10 years, Sydney has had warm, dry winters and cooler, wet summers. Once upon a time winter wasn't a time for a gardening, now it is the...

Re: GM leaf problem

I think you are right. They are in the sun and quite dry as it is dry this time of year. They are growing fine though - faster than my Senoritas and Pacific Plantains (which don't get the same amount...

GM leaf problem

Hi
I have a query about one of my smaller Gros Michels. The younger leaves are getting this brown edging. The plant continues growing fine; in fact it is growing rapidly despite our winter lows of 10...

Re: dissapointed with mystery banana

I believe you are correct. The fruit was split on one side and the rest of the bunch have stayed green. At least I have something to look forward to with the rest of the bunch

I will probably end up...

Re: dissapointed with mystery banana

It looks like orinocco, except it doesn't have a 'great taste' (no taste just sweet). Odd. Also it was found growing in an old, abandoned area of Australia - I don't know if Orinocco has been here...

Hi
This was my very first banana; I have grown it since I was 10. It was given to me by a family friend who described it as a 'finger banana'. Well, I never tried it before until yesterday. A single...
