Cheshire Tropics

Hi my Sikkimensis came through winter fine as i described for the Basjoo in the Banana section. You can cut the point off the Yucca cut just above the leaf if you so wish. Nice collection though

Cheshire Tropics

... Red Robin 1 x Salvia 2 x Musa Basjoo 3 x Hosta I also planted some Rudbekia and Crocosmia from seed so will see how these get on. I want a Musa Sikkimensis too but I dubious after uncovering the Basjoo and finding it was rotten. If everything settles in then the garden should look really good ...

is it time ?

Ive brought my variegated tanee (and pups) in as it got shredded in the strong winds. Sikkimensis and basjoo stay out permanently anyway. Hiniba and maurelli are still out but will come in at a later date when proper winter sets in.

Most wind resistant banana plants please

I only have experience of growing two different banana species outside here in my exposed lancs garden. These are Musa basjoo and Musa sikkimensis Red Tiger. Of the two. the M.sikkimensis has decidedly more robust leaves than the far more familiar M.basjoo. As a consequence, they don't tear ...

Most wind resistant banana plants please

... but since no one else has answered... The only one that doesn't get shredded here in Cornwall is Musella lasiocarpa. Musa basjoo, 'Tibet', and sikkimensis have proved hardy. Ensete ventricosum is hardy here for about three out of four years without protection; I lost it this last winter. The ...

Winter 2017/2018 Beast from the East survivors

All my tender stuff was kept in my polyhouse so thankfully all survived. I have noticed that my musa sikkimensis are really struggling though and they were in my polyhouse. I lost a couple of basjoo which I risked not protecting but I wrapped everything else and all survived. ...

Re: Winter 2017-18 losses

... with fungal issues. Nerium oleander "Atlas" had die back on main growth points but is now re-shooting. Musa Basjoo which was protected is ok but Sikkimensis died right back and is coming back the roots. Nolinas and dasylirions ... no issues, Yucca carnerosana damage on head but now regrowing. ...

Re: Musa "Mekong Giant"

looking at it all year round it looks like basjoo and sikki look like when they get leggy with not enough light. it is like this in as much sun as it can have here so I wonder if it is just like that or if my sun is just not strong enough for it. it ...

Possibly, I've just dragged it into the conservatory now for some extra warmth, once it starts moving again and the pups put on some size I'll separate them.

This it what it looks like now.

Re: Siki

I got a baby basjoo, ensete and sikki on my south/east facing window sill, seem to be growing nicely, they need humidity and spraying them with a water mist seems to help leaves stay good inside my kitchen.

Re: Musa Basjoo Unwrapped this weekend

... either way, so its only whether you want to protect the pseudo stems to have nice tall plants. And if you are doing that you should be growing M. sikkimensis anyway, as the paddle-shaped leaves are far more attractive than Basjoo. Well ... In My Opinion that is!!
