Re: Newest Banana Plant Arrivals - Damaged Ice Cream

Re: Newest Banana Plant Arrivals - Damaged Ice Cream

Yeah I was surprised how big they were when they arrived, I was expecting them to be no bigger than the Dwarf Orinoco was. In the picture I had already repotted the Dwarf Orinoco, it arrived in a...
