Re: Photo upload is not working

I use Facebook but not in the sense that I post to my page. I'll try uploading pics there and linking to them. I'd really like Gabe to ID a banana I have good photos of.

Re: Photo upload is not working

That's my problem I uploaded large files so they could be enlarged to see detail. This was before we had limits. Now I'm over the limit and would need to delete or resize each one and possibly relink...

Re: Photo upload is not working

Hi Richard are you deleting photos in order to upload more?

I won't delete any as then the post they are linked to will not be able to display them.

Re: New PUPs, let them grow? Or take them out?

I have too many projects to manage my bananas correctly. I didnt read Richard's PDF but I imagine it's close to the same as my advice. At this time of year in a climate like mine:

Is it?

Re: Red banana identification

Ok I answered my own question. The maurelii will not pup it is an Ensete. The Siam Ruby will pup it is a Musa.

The Ensete can be propagated by cutting the base of an actively growing, not dying,...

Re: AARP is Fake News!

Richard to not watch the news is not a bad thing altogether. Most all the media is driven by sensationalism and they really don't do much investigative journalism any more.

What's going on in your...

Re: AARP is Fake News!

Hi Richard as I looked at the box it looked 75% in the yellow box and only 25% in the orange! IMHO no part of it belonged anywhere near the yellow box.

Re: AARP is Fake News!

The media bias chart was the biggest piece of liberal comedy I've seen recently!

The Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC offer "fair interpretations of the news"!

ROTFLMAO!

Re: Fertilizer

If Momma pushes four or five leaves before she pushes a bloom you should get fruit this year and in time to bloom. You should get a bloom off the mid size pup. It's even possible to get the small pup...

Re: Fertilizer

Yes and you will undoubtedly gain 5 - 7 pups.

Remember that if you are seriously looking for production in your area you should have only one pup in the 5 - 6 foot range at spring wake up. Then...

Re: Time from basal swelling to fruiting?

I've never called it a pre flag leaf. I've always called it a half leaf for obvious reason. Most of the time its right at half length. That's what I've observed in my climate and with my...

Re: Anyone in FL or SoCal growing chinkapin aka dwarf chestnut?

Richard,

I have a friend in Pace, Florida which is 8b/9a growing them. They are a native plant here. I'll try to get an answer on the chill hours for you.

Re: Banana nectar?

Orinoco is great! Sweet! However do not taste the fluid (sap) from the p-stem. Very nasty. I had heard that you can hollow out a stem to collect water to drink in a survival situation. Having tasted...

Re: Zebrina Rojo, edible leaves?

To be clear, are we speaking of using the leaves as a cooking vessel but NOT EATING THE LEAVES! Right?

Re: Pink Bananas

Thanks for releasing my memories. That is the variety that I have. I think I got mine from Coast Crab in Mobile Al.
