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...

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.

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

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: 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...

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.

Miamimax, who is...

Re: Blue Java Variegated

I'll have both AeAe pups and Thai variegated pups for sale soon. They are a bit small right now and need to get bigger. That variegated pup looks teeny tiny, which is worrisome to me. I think it...

Dwarf Banana Flowering

Can anyone identify this one for me? I'm not sure what it was when I planted it -- possibly Double Majoi, but I can't be sure.

It's a pretty short banana at about four feet tall, and it has taken a...

Re: Variegated Thai banana pups

Hi Kat, yes, I do. I have one fairly large one on the mat that I could remove. Expect shipping to be $45 on this one. That one would have to be shipped with the top removed.

Otherwise, I have...

Thanks for that info., Harvey. I'll pass it along to other growers in your Zone. Congrats on your banana's survival. We had all heard that it was more hardy than the AeAe, but it is nice to have...

Re: Variegated Thai banana pups

Hi Harvey,

I don't mind at all. Mine are pretty tall now at around twelve feet at the top of the p-stem, and I expect that they would flower this year. None have flowered for me yet, and the...

Re: Sweetheart (FHIA -3) banana

Mine hasn't fruited yet so I can't do a comparison to mine. Your leaves look a little wider than mine, and I don't think mine has the white on the back of the leaves that yours do.
