Re: Looking up in my Texas garden!

Looking great! We did have a very mild winter here along the SE TX Gulf Coast. I just moved about a year ago and took pups of all my bananas with me so all my pups spent last summer getting...

Re: Searching for Siam Ruby

Plant Delights out of North Carolina typically has them. I believe they may be TC'd, however, and are often very slow to get going. I purchased one from them last spring and every leaf it pushed...

Re: Home depot Blue java or Namwa?

Namwah has certainly been a more reliable fruit producer for me that whatever passes for "Ice Cream" in the industry. My Namwah always fruited more consistently and much heavier that my Ice Cream...

Re: Getting zebrina to flower?

I have never gotten mine to bloom and I've grown it for 13 seasons in the Houston, TX area. It does tend to die back to the ground in the winter, even here, so I'm sure that's why it has never...

Re: Does anyone have experience with acuminata X laterita hybrids?

I have grown M. laterita for over 10 years and always keep it potted due to its propensity to spread all over the place. I do not have any experience witht hybrids between it and M. acuminata,...

Re: I can't figure out what is wrong with my Ensete Maurelii

I think the Ensetes like a moist soil but not one that stays overly wet for too long. They are African plants and I think they need a fairly quick-draining soil. I would definitely suggest going...

Re: Rajapuri White Weak Leaf

Is a southern exposure your only option for growing this plant? Maybe somewhere with a little less intense sunlight might help. A southeastern exposure might even be enough with the intensity of...

Re: Here's what happens if you don't remove pups

I agree about the lack of air. Lack of oxygen into the soil causes an anaerobic condition (hence the nasty smell) and can also help lead to the root rot if there is too much moisture present.

Re: Using Hua Moa to Make Tostones

Thanks for the input. These bad boys were as green as they could be-trust me! Fluffy is a very good way to describe them.

Re: Saba or Dwarf Brazilian?

Try wrapping the pseudostems in several layers of frost cloth. I do that successfully with my bananas in Houston and I routinely get frost at my house each winter.
