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.
