Re: Thai Variegated Banana and AeAe flowering

I have two Tanee's flowering now. One has green bananas, and the other bananas are variegated. The last picture is dark, but the bananas are not variegated on that bunch, and it is a...

Re: Lakatan?

Thanks for the help, Everyone. I have three mats of this flowering now at all the same height. I do have DC, but the bananas are much thinner and longer on the DC. This banana has very angular...

Re: Lakatan?

Hi Mark! It was fun seeing you yesterday as it always is. Thank you also for the egg cartons and cucumbers and banana identification. Hope to see you again soon.

Re: Lakatan?

Thanks, everyone, for the help.

Thanks, Snookie. Yes, the chickens love to scratch at my bananas and love to eat the pups too! They would probably eat the whole mat if I didn't have them...

Lakatan?

I think this one was supposed to be Lakatan, but I can't be sure. It is a dwarf in any case. Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: Thai Variegated Banana and AeAe flowering

Hi Molly, if I'm not mistaken, the Indonesian Ivory banana is the same as the Thai variegated banana 'Tanee,' but I could be wrong. I bought my variegated bananas under all different names, and they...

Re: Thai Variegated Banana and AeAe flowering

Hey Keyupid, don't feel bad. I bought four AeAe pups when I was first starting out growing bananas, and they all died. Three of them were too little to begin with and didn't have enough corm, and...

Thai Variegated Banana and AeAe flowering

One of my Thai 'Tanee' bananas is starting to flower. This is the first one to flower since they were planted in April, 2010. I am told that the fruit is seeded and inedible. I do have several...

Re: Hawaii move update

Congrats, Andrew! I am excited for you. It will all be worth it in the end.

By the way, the girls are doing well. I took a few pictures today to update you. Momi has been adjusting nicely, but...

Re: Ae Ae Pup 5/6/2012

I agree with everyone that a solid green pup is rare; although, I do get a few on my Thai variegated bananas, but the majority are variegated to some degree or another.

However, I have an AeAe in...

Re: I finally gave in and did it

Hi Ante, they are 'Tanee' variegated banana corms with some stalk. I know the stalks don't look very variegated in the picture, but they were. They were a little beat up from winter.

Brent, just...

Re: I finally gave in and did it

Kat, you probably will want to keep them both in containers since it freezes in your area. They will get to be quite large, and so digging them up will be quite a chore, especially the Tanee which...

Re: I finally gave in and did it

I agree with the others that it will be fine, and you have new growth showing already. If you would have purchased a Tanee from me, I would have sent you one twice as big and packed it extremely...

Re: Short of digging up the corm, how do I kill a patch?

Yeah, I do actually have gophers here, but my cat should take care of that hopefully.

Thanks for the help with this. If I didn't have such bad back pain, I would dig out the corms myself, but it is...

Re: What is it with tiny bananas?

Thanks for your help, Gabe. I can't remember right now what I did last year. I think I put a cupful of slow-release fertilizer pellets, like 13-13-13, down at each mat, and I think I used the water...

Re: What is it with tiny bananas?

Thanks, Tony. I suppose tiny and fat is okay, but tiny and thin is ridiculous. When you peel the banana, you only get about an inch of fruit. It makes it not worth growing that variety in that...

Re: Short of digging up the corm, how do I kill a patch?

This thread was started in 2009, but it is the same exact question that I have. I have several mats that I need to take out, and I have already hacked them down to the ground. The problem is that I...

What is it with tiny bananas?

Any ideas? Am I not fertilizing enough? Not removing pups enough?

I have so many bananas with tiny fruit. It is just making me crazy. So far, the ones with tiny fruit have been Raja Puri, Dwarf...

Re: Ae Ae Pup 5/6/2012

Mine is in the ground too, and Tony is right that it looks so much better when protected from sun and wind, but the others are right that it grows fast and becomes less fussy in the ground. Mine...

Re: Blue Java Variegated

Congrats, Andrew!

The seller of the first one, mda1515, is the seller that I bought many (or most) of my Thai variegated bananas from a couple of years ago. He seems very nice.

Re: Blue Java Variegated

Mine haven't fruited yet, but from what I understand, the fruit bears seeds and is inedible.

Re: Dwarf Banana Flowering

Hi Phil, thanks. That's okay. Most of my albums are of plants and/or animals and are public. I have a few private ones, and those are not accessible by the public.
