Re: Starting a nursery/David!


When my Musa basjoo was young, it hardly ever pushed up over 3' after a bad
winter. I suspect that it might be related to the number of pups it has,
with each succeeding pup getting larger, as bamboo does.

This year, my Musa basjoo is over 20' tall, with some shoots of similar
size, plus several smaller ones. I think it's about 6 or 7 years old.

By the way, I didn't know they kept growing in one direction. Mine is headed
for the "north 40."
