Finally pupping with deep planted basjoo a

I think I mentioned in an earlier post that I dug some feeding ditches (6-8 inch) beside three of my deep planted basjoos. I wanted,to boost growth and hopefully see a pup. Wow!

I have fed three times with double strength miracle grow, dividing six gallon among the three plants, with regular strength when I feed everything else also. I follow with deep watering to hopefully get everything down.

As of yesterday there are eight very thick pups popping out of the ground, and the larger banana is thicker than my thigh right now. This has made such a huge difference. I'll post a pic soon
