Just wanted to share a few pictures of my banana plants that I'm over wintering in my house.
I have a large SDC in my living room. It has lost a few leaves since I brought it inside and I have to keep checking for spider mites. They seem to love this plant! I have to mist / wipe the leaves often and sometimes spray for mite control.
I have a small musa basjoo that I am growing in an unheated upstairs bedroom. This plant keeps pushing out leaves even over the winter!
Also in my basement, I have two basjoos, a dwarf orinoco and a SDC pup sharing a 300w led grow light. I give them 8 1/2 hours of light a day and will start to increase their exposure in the next few weeks. I had some fungus gnat problems with these guys but was able to solve it with a natural bacteria that I added to their water.
So far things look ok, but I'm sure they can't wait for spring! and neither can I!
Thanks for sharing - I've learned a lot from this website.
