Could we use that code Blairs? I could get two, thanks!

Daz, your welcome, also good luck with last years.

I already have two Basjoos. hope its still green under the brown skin, I have one close to my bedroom window so when it grows in summer its the first thing and last thing I see before open/shuteye.... :lol:

Now I decided to have Ensete (it got damp and wet) as bedding so I need one of those too, and the Siki.

Hi guys,

I got 2 from this guy - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Musa-Sikkimen ... 1082670067

Nice plants - they have yet to show any red (under leaf shows a little but no striping) but growing nicely on my window sill - 2 new leaves in 2 weeks.

I paid £12 for both (inc postage) icon_thumright

Chris must have pulled it off. If you join the mailing list then you get codes sent ever so often.

I know its not a M. sikkimensis but still lovely foliage.....
I contacted Easy Tropicals afew months ago about availability of E. Ventricosum Maurelii as plug plants. I had a couple of them last year, they grew to be lovely healthy plants. They advised that they would be back in stock again from mid-March. At that time they'll show on their website and probably ebay as well. :D
