Not only did my banana make it across the country without even the slightest amount of mould, but it is now thriving! All four of the pups survived and have grown considerable. The only thing slowing growth is a lack of water. Every night I soak it and by the end of the next day it is dried out and often wilting. I might need to stand it in a tray.
It's really crazy in Vancouver. You see bananas everywhere. Musa basjoo is hardy here and often the stems will survive the winter unprotected. Cold spell will however kill them down to the rhizome so many people wrap them.
My Yucca rostrata have also been doing well. They desperately need to be repotted. They look small but I checked the roots. The one on the right has the upper soil washed away. I need to repot it soon because the growth is clearly lagging behind the other.
Now stevia! it is sweet. Unfortunately some other animal realizes that as well and has been routinely munching on it. I think I might bring them to my community plot. It seems like they're finally large enough.
