I'd wait for a master to chime in.
Your pot is what you may put a SDC Banana in. Once roots reach maximum density the plant won't get any taller, so what you'd really like to have it in a 18 inch pot, and maybe a 30 gallon next summer, if not the growth will be stunted by the pot and the likelihood of getting banana bounty is reduced, and that's not a pleasant experience (ask patty). :^)
