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.
I'm a noob too :P I have learned quite a bit from joining the site
