Re: Looking for Ensete glaucum ‘Snow Banana’

I agree $40 is expensive for a 2x2 potted plant, but it is 7” deep so the roots should be very developed. I haven’t bought a banana from them but I did get a Heliconia rostrata a week ago that has...

Re: Looking for Ensete glaucum ‘Snow Banana’

I looked at Urban tropicals but they wanted $40 + shipping for a 2x2 inch pot. I'm not paying that much for a tiny plant.

I've tried planting glaucum seeds many times with no luck but I did get some...

Re: Looks like I may not receive my order from Florida Hill Nursery.

As for your 16$ ICE it is NOT a blue Java, I can guarantee that. The "ice cream" you got is the AGS tall namwah.

Variegated Basjoo

Hey y’all
So I was shopping at Lowe’s yesterday when I stumbled upon a variegated musa basjoo. It looks like all of the variegated spots are more fragile and susceptible to sunburn, so I have it...

Re: For Northern basjoo growers

It sounds like it was one of the recent pups that retained the 4ft height over the winter - how old? and did you really have a 5ft pile of leaves over the plant? What did you do to keep the leaves in...
