Re: Growth habits of the siam ruby red??

You picked it up at Stokes or somewhere else? They're not open on weekends and that makes it tough for me to get down there and hand pick a plant. BTW, the plumeria and musa's are doing...

Re: Is this a good price?...

How many lost their Dwarf Namwah Pearl from the last batch we ordered?

I know mine croaked (that was the second one I tried). For anyone that has one still alive, do you have recent pics?

Re: Ice Cream Bunch Cut Today

I just counted 40 bananas at Stokes on their website.

I was there about a month and a half ago and they had very nice plants. Most were much larger that you usually get via mail but the price was reflective of their size. Most in the $18 to $25 range....
