Re: T Rex, Trtrepanax Help needed, is mine still alive??

it doesnt look great if i'm honest... and it 2 to 3 years old, seems to me to be quite small, at that age i'd expect the main stem to be 3 feet high, and 2 inches diameter.. mine are now into year 3, year 2 in the ground, and are growing nicely... i'd say you have been a bit to kind to it and it wou...

Re: Canna seeds

it might not be damping off but i think it is,, did you remove heat or keep it on, and could be you didnt remove the prop lid during the day... dampness kills more seedlings than anything,
i tend to lift the lids off during the day and replace at night, that way you can get some air around them

Re: Where did you get your virus free cannas in 2011?

if you just want the tubers, then the places ive mentioned already are as good as any, and ive not had any problems

both grow the plants and then split up the tubers in the autumn, so they will have already dealt with and destroyed any diseased plants
