Re: Bigger pots?
Good move, Matt, there are some in this forum who advocate smallish pots, but I take my cues
from nature. In the wild bananas have the whole continent as their "pot". Of course they have to
share that one with a few other plants.
What I am trying to say is that no pot is too big for the banana, but some pots may get too big
for you to handle.
BTW, getting bananas to fruit here in Canada is a tall order and it requires a tall greenhouse,
because the seasons here are just not long enough above freezing temps to allow blooming &
fruiting in the same year
