Default Re: banana plant in south africa - need identifying please

Thanks Mushtaq!

Ive looked at some pictures of orinoco and must say im fairly convinced now thats what ive got here. My leaves have bright green tops but lots of white powdery stuff on the bottoms which can rub off, which i understand could be another sign of orinoco?

just hoping it's dwarf otherwise i will not be seeing any fruit, sorry richard but if thats the case im going to have to keep it pot bound so as to fit indoors this winter - may to august. my max is 3 meters. will the 7 gallon pot keep a full size orinoco down to this size? And can i expect pups of a pot bound plant?

also, tips on fertilizing as per op please?

thanks for educating me guys, first timer but im hooked already!
