Re: Worlds Largest Bunch of Banana's

1000 fingers

The 1000 fingers has a good sized bunch again - probably over a 1000 by now. However with TS Chantal about to grace our shores possibly as a cat1 hurricane, they might not survive the next few days...

Re: Black Pepper

A friend passed over some peppercorns that they had grown themselves - on a vine? They had processed? them themselves and the peppercorns were so hard that the pepper grinder couldn't cope.

Sorry to be so late to the party - we have a cashew tree that has loads of fruit/nuts. You know of course that each fruit only has one cashew nut which is why they are so expensive (apart from the...

Re: areca palm seedligs

Re: Saba A Plantain ?

Re: Making pothos bloom?

Once it starts to climb and gets about 4ft tall the leaves change to dinner plate size, but the early small leaves stay the same. And once the aerial roots come down it really takes off. Mine has...

Re: Making pothos bloom?

Yes - the flowers are nothing to get excited about and the plant only seems to flower when it has reached 35-40ft, but the beautiful leaves more than make up for the flowers! It's a monster but I...

Re: Big bug eating the roots
