Re: Hi all!

Re: New member - Tucson, AZ

Re: Help!! newly planted 6' stalk dying...

First, a belated welcome to you.

Now, sharpen your machete and whack the whole p-stem off down to where it's still green. Don't water it until it puts out some leaves. After you lop off the dead...

Re: !st banana plan (dwarf type) some concerns

Yes, it takes some time to re-establish and should be gradually introduced to full sunlight. Start it in the shade and introduce it to a little more sun every few days. After a week or two it should...

Re: Looking for Blue Java/dwarf Namwah Pups
