I live in zone 8b and I really don't know where to start. Ideally I would like to start off these bananas in a container, but I don't know if that is an option. I am clueless as to what type of soil or fertilizers that these plants need. I need help! I figured this would be a great place to ask for advice Thanks for your time, and I would appreciate any advice you have.
Welcome - best to start out in the container they are in.. then send some pics and questions
Growing: Orinoco, Rajapuri, Dwarf Cav, SDC, TT, Dwarf Red, Dwarf Namwah, Tall Namwah (aka Ice Cream), Dwarf Brazilian, Veinte Cohol, California Gold, Double Mohai, NOT-Goldfinger, Gran Nain, Velutina
