WILKO MUSA BAJOO BARGAIN - ALERT

Post by Sat » Wed Nov 07, 2012 1:10 pm

WILKO MUSA BAJOO BARGAIN - ALERT

Went into Local Telford Wilko, small musa marked down from £5 to £1.50 and Med size still at £5.

Took a few £1.50 and 1 £5 at the counter, to my surprise the £5, scanned at 1pence, yes 1pence!!

I asked the lady could I get a few more, so I did grabbed 5 at 1p and 3 at £1.50. 8 Plants for £4.55 Bargain

Good luck to other !

Can post pic later if required

I have seen them, you may have just bought a Musa Dwarf Cavendish, they are notorious for mislabeling.

Kris was so impressed he posted twice :D

I have also fallen into the buying musa which turned out to be cavendish at Wilko before.

Cavendish are not hardy at all but if you keep them above 30*c with 60% humidity and strong light you may be lucky and get some edible nanas after a year lol.

I'm sure you know your Basjoos and your Cavs but Cavs make really good houseplants. Even my ex has kept mine alive indoors. :shock:

Bananas are ok indoors, but they do have a habit of 'sweating' occasionally. Not the sort of thing to have near soft furnishings

If they are dwarf cav, they do not go dormant, so need to be above 10C for maybe 20 hours a day, no lower than 6C for a short time, and in the highest light you can give them. A dark, unheated garage will see them die in a very short time. :roll:
Best regards
