Re: An Update Of My Latest Nana Plants 2018!

Hector do you treat the end of the rachis after you cut off the bell? I noticed that the end of the rachis looks pretty clean at the cut but mine (untreated) seem to develop a bit of mold/mildew on...

Re: 2018 Banana Patch: Pensacola, Florida

The specialized solar bags would probably help getting through November and December with better gains. I'll try them out next season if I have a late September flower.

Re: Hanging Banana Bundle vs Cutting up into individual hands

Just saw the gif you made from flower to fruit. Pretty cool! Good job!

Re: Winterize ice cream banana

That one is pretty small. I would pot it up and put it in a southern window where it gets plenty of light and decent temps. It might not grow too much but it would have a quicker start when replanted...
