    Keep in mind Plumerias won't survive a 25F (or even 30F) cold snap. True tropicals, they are.

    I'll have a heater by the time winter comes around.

    I got dwarf cavendish... Climate zone 8-10. The basjoo I was looking at, but I was more into the fruit. I want those regular grocery store bananas, which is the cavendish I believe.

    Just remembered... I got mine from here: http://www.ebay.com/sch/oasistropica...&_trksid=p3686

    They have a HUGE selection of bananas, from cold hardy to rare to anything else. Wait until they upload more if you're looking for banana trees.

    Coffee plants are really fun, but they might not be hardy.

    Now that I'll have banana trees outside the greenhouse, I'm more interested in smaller tropicals that will be easy to keep, basically forgiving ones. I believe Trade Joe's has coffee plants, I'll check there.

    Dicksonia antarctica or another tree fern species would make a nice addition.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Ive got some seed pods from this tropical plant outside that likes to make these big big leaves...really good for shading a greenhouse...if you can send me a SASE I can send you some of pods...the plant can take freezes.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
