Re: Banana FELL OVER! - Thai Giants - what fert & how old?

Those are huge! If you see this response: What fertilizer did you use on the largest Thai Giants and how old are they?
The only large variety on PDN I saw was the Alocasia 'Portodora' with an 8ft potential. Alex NCY/FL has one that looks like that and it reached 12 ft between the April and Aug since being planted in FL.
The Alocasia Macrorrhizos 'Borneo Giant' is said to get the tallest when planted in the US. Mine went from 5" to ~6ft between March and October. However, it seemed most susceptible to the cold of all my EEs. After a few nights in the upper 30's its growth almost stopped and the pups were damaged to the point of almost dying.
