Default Re: Quick question...

As some have mentioned, Super Dwarf can be a rather stubborn plant and often grows as it pleases even when other bananas may thrive. Indoors it often has a cycle of getting large, then dieing back and pupping like mad before fruiting. The only place I have seen this plant being grown successfully was in the ground in South Florida during the summer, I believe it is because this plant is really intolerable of drastically altering its growing conditions (from my own experience with it.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Washington, Hawaii since 2004. Commercial banana farmer, 200+ varieties.
