Re: First budding of my nanas

I heard the same somewhere too, that's why I cut it down to that height. Just wanted some affirmation.

Eventually when it does rot to be enough of an eyesore, i'll cut it down completely.

Re: First budding of my nanas

That's just great.

Yeah, they're about the same height.

If they're not what I expected, I'll have to replant. Damn.

Re: First budding of my nanas

Yeah, the p-stem was about 10'.

The male flowers mostly drop of on this plant.

I love plantains either fried green (tostones) or over ripe (maduros). I Can't wait.

Sorry about your bad luck...

Re: First budding of my nanas

After the first few hands of bananas have developed well, the rest of them seem to be dropping off. Is this normal? Any reason why? Cooler weather maybe?

Re: Hurricane Irma!

3 weeks is awesome. :08: I thought it would be months. The next fertilization is due in 2 weeks. Should I do it then as scheduled or put it off a little longer?

Thx
