The only problem? All my directions came in Ukrainian! It comes with a whole lot of pieces to assemble and it took me awhile to figure out, so I’ll share it here in hopes that it may speed up the process for some of you.
Today I’ll be sharing a closer look at plant division, with bananas, Everybody knows that bananas don’t really have seeds. If you’ve seen them growing you’ll know that they’re also not woody and upright, but there are a lot of baby bananas growing around it. So we’ll lift one out and take it over to our propagation station!
