"A Wine Coloured Blood Banana and My Google Adsense, Nuffnang Money ”, a copyrighted post, was written for My Nice Garden blog by Autumn Belle @ http://www.mynicegarden.com/ on April 19th, 2011.
Musa zebrina is grown for its exotic variegated foliage. The leaves are dark green with wind red splotches on the top with a brown midrib. The underside is also wine red in colour. When grown on the ground, it can reach a height of 3 m but only 1.2 m in containers. The blooms are orange-red. This is a veyr attractive and exotic plant that can be used to enhance a poolside area or patio.
Note: the yellow blooms behind the Musa zebrina foliage in the picture above are those of another species, Musa lasiocarpa (lotus banana).
My Ads Earnings.
Last month, I have received my 2nd payment from Google Adsense. It is USD 113.99 = RM 341.60 for the 6 months period Sep 2010 to Feb 2011. My first cheque from Nuffnang is also on the way (within 30 days). It took more than one year to accumulate a meagre RM 100.00 from Nuffnang, of which RM 1.00 was deducted as transaction fee. It is obvious that Google Adsense pays me better!
Only a small amount of money but it makes me very happy, Yay!
