Re: Florida Orinoco history ???

I like em cause they are tough as heck, can take burning full sun in 100+ temps, cold, solid clay, and will survive in suspended animation under my house in winter for 6 months. I would say they are...

Re: When will my banana seeds produce leaves

I buy them From Mark Davies in the UK. I always get good germination from this seller, and decent prices for more seeds. Takes about 3 weeks to get them to the US from there, but worth it.

Re: When will my banana seeds produce leaves

The sphagnum method works best for me, I recently had 20 or so Musa Itinerans India form, and about 4 out of 10 Musa Thai black seeds germinate. I never had luck in soil. Since I had such good luck...

Re: Finally 1 musa Musa Griersonii!

1 out of the 3 that germinated so far, the first one died before it got out of the seed. I think this one is going to make it.

Re: Something bad happened

If you can look in the end of the pups bottom and all you see are rings then it was cut, or broke above the corm, if you see some solid white then part of the corm came with it. I have sprouted roots...
