Re: Young Pups and Giant Corms for sale, 11 varieties

If Gabe can confirm that this isn't a true Cocos, I'd be more than happy to refund your money. Like I mentioned above, I'm having serious doubts about it now that the bunch is developing.

I've...

Re: Young Pups and Giant Corms for sale, 11 varieties

I completely agree. The bunch is small, sticks out perpendicular to the ground, and has plump 2" long bananas that look like they'll start ripening in a month or so. It was stunted from being...

Re: My New Banana House

Thanks for the reply, you bring up some good thoughts.

I'm hoping this tunnel will put out enough heat that I won't have to brace the spine. I have around 12,000 gallons of water in there that...

My New Banana House

Here are some pics of my latest pit-style tunnel greenhouse, which is around 80' long x 17' wide and has a 4' deep pit. The planting areas have been dug out an additional 2', so from the perspective...

Re: My semi-pit banana greenhouse

As I noted above, this semi-pit tunnel greenhouse is on its way to becoming primarily a fig house. I've been moving all of the bananas out and into a new, larger greenhouse that I've just built. ...

Re: My outdoor 'mini-plantation' here in Kansas

The bunch of bananas in the pic above ripened well, but none of the other plants flowered. It took the others too long to get acclimated, and they were only just getting going when cool temps...

BTW, to share an update, I've mostly converted this semi-pit tunnel greenhouse into a 'fig house' and have moved most of the bananas into a bigger new pit tunnel greenhouse. There's only a small...

Re: My semi-pit banana greenhouse

The lowest air temp was in the upper 30's. Dwarf Orinoco pstems don't lose any height from those temps, but I do manually chop them back some at the end of winter to try and give them more headroom...

Re: Florida Hill Nursery?

I've ordered from them twice, both around the same time period 2-3 years ago. My 4-item FHN order of Dwarf Namwah, Double, Raja Puri, and Ice Cream turned out to be 4 Dwarf Orinocos after I fruited...

Re: At what height do your Dwarf Namwahs flower?

Thanks for the insight, that's exactly what I was hoping to hear. :08:

The ceiling in my new pit greenhouse is around 11', so pstems around 6' would be ideal.

At what height do your Dwarf Namwahs flower?

I've been trying to get a Dwarf Namwah for a couple of years. My first attempt, ordered through FHN, turned out to be a Dwarf Orinoco. I've just made a second attempt through Going Bananas, but I'm...

Harvested my first bunch of Dwarf Orinoco a few days ago, last pic is from yesterday. Today they were ripe...and good! Richard has said they have a hint of strawberry to them, and I agree.

Re: My bananas were featured in my local newspaper today :)

It was perfect timing. The article came out on my Dad's 72nd birthday, so in a way it was like a big birthday card for him :)

Re: Veinte Cohol - 193 Fingers

That's incredible! Before your threads, I didn't realize VC's even had the potential to be so productive. You have single-handedly changed my view of this cultivar.

Very impressive. Well done.

Re: My outdoor 'mini-plantation' here in Kansas

You're close! The pipe in the pic is from the downspout of a big shed that gives them extra rainwater.

But I also have 4 big pools/ponds just outside of the picture, and I pump the fishy water out...
