Got tired of driving Yugo and wana try these

But again, anyone ever tried giving them extra
nutrients/supplements for survivability
during the winter months?

Just a thought from a newbie.
A good fertilizer is crucial for growing bananas successfully. A "happy and healthy" plant will simply be less disease-susceptible. At the end of growing season( here in SoCal usually end of November until beginning of February) I will stop fertilizing. Before the cold hits at the end of summer, early fall I do like to give my plants a little extra potassium.
