May 2008 is when I bought the Musa Rajapuri Banana. It came in a 4 inch pot and was about a foot tall. By the end of 2008 it had grown into a nice size plant and seem to like it's new home.
By 2010 Mama had three pups and was showing no sign of bearing fruit. April of this year I pulled two of the pups and
re-potted mama with one pup hoping this would redirect her energy to pushing out a flower.

January 19th is when the Blueberries came home with me. So far they don't seem to mind the pots they will need to live in.
Here is the recipe for the soil mix I planted the blueberries in.
1/3 Pathway bark (1/4 inch)
1/3 Peat Moss (coarse, if you can find it)
1/3 Leaf Mold or Forest Humus based potting soil.
Mix together and add 2 tablespoons of Soil Sulfur.
