Re: Sorry, Blue Java is a letdown

I wanted them for the ornamental aspect. I want one of every variety I can find.

I have a few varieties that I don't even care to eat, but grow them just to have. Next I want to find a A’ea’e!!

Re: New Corms

Looks good. I ususally just stick them in the ground, never had a corm die on me. Is sand supposed to be better to start them in?

Chickens do like to dust bathe in loose/sandy soil. Put some large rocks around the base of the plants to keep them from scratching around.

Chickens don't care for banana plants. They will eat up all your old bananas though! We get so many bananas we can't eat them all, when they go black the birds get em.
