Re: Variegated bananas

Edit: Wow I'm tired. I intended to PM and instead commented, LOL. Whoops. I'll just... erase this and send it in a PM as intended. Nobody saw anything. ;)

Re: Variegated namwah

$100 + $15 shipping. I've never spent that much on one plant before, it but seems to be what variegated ones tend to cost.

Variegated namwah

It's been a while since I posted here. My garden's been pretty much left to turn into a jungle while I've been recovering from a few medical issues. I'm back on my feet now (mostly, I do have to take...

Re: How far from my fence should I plant?

If a fruiting plant needs support, you can make a brace out of pvc pipes or something. I wouldn't want to use a fence as support, personally. I'd be afraid the weight would damage it.

The Patupi I bought from you wasn't the rectangle but it did have roots and is doing great. It's too dark for me to go outside and take current pics, but here's what I've got on my computer. I'll...

Re: Variegated banana plant wanted

It's cheaper than the $150-$250+ ones I've seen. >.< I'd love a variegated banana, but I know if I ever spent that kind of money on one plant, I'd somehow manage to kill it. Quickly. That's just the...

Re: I found this in my garden

If you're on Facebook, I can point you towards a Florida snake identification group that's good at this sort of thing. Or if not, I could post your photos there for you and let you know what they...

Re: Is it normal for banana flowers to drip?

Legally, we're not allowed to use gray water to water plants in Florida, which I think is dumb. Of course, you'd have to get caught first, which I'd guess is unlikely. (Unless your set-up is visible...

Re: Agristarts and Blue Java

I also got my blue java through a forum member because I didn't want to be bothered with the "is it real or not" hassle. I know that many people consider Namwah to be better, but I wanted to have...

Re: How far from my fence should I plant?

I thought I'd give you guys an update. I got the last of my 12 plants in the mail yesterday and got them all in the ground. I've started digging up the grass and connecting the dots with mulch, but I...

Re: Wanted: Veinte Cohol, Manzano, Dwarf Orinoco, Thousand Fingers

Re: Wanted: Veinte Cohol, Manzano, Dwarf Orinoco, Thousand Fingers

That would be a very good question. I didn't realize there was more than one kind. Can you tell me what the differences between them are?
