Re: Veinte Cohol Fruit in Pennsylvania

Just an FYI for those gnats, grab yourself some mosquito bits and soak them in the water you're going to use. It'll kill them off and you won't have to worry about them even with the wet soil.

Re: Veinte Cohol Fruit in Pennsylvania

Congrats on the fruit, very exciting. I'm also growing a VC in Ohio. Did you have it in a window all winter or with grow lights? Or just let it go dormant?

Re: Germinating Musa Velutina

I bought 10 seeds and the seller said to expect 50% germination at best.

I let them soak in water for over two weeks (I forgot about them) and 6 have sprouted :-)

The leaves appear to emerge almost in the same plane as the previous ones. Only seen that once before. Nice growing!
