He sure has been! I was planning on ordering from Ty this spring, too! Also, don't forget sddarkman619. If you're looking for dwarf varieties, he has a Dwarf Iholena that I got over Thanksgiving and it has already put out three more leaves (six total). By the way, guys, is that a good pace for bananas? If it isn't, then I need to increase my lighting.

Also, sddarkman619 had a Dwarf Namwa that I took a chance with, because it gets 8-10 feet and I only have 8 foot ceilings! I'm kinda planning on tilting it and propping it up, if I have to, to get it in, if it hasn't already finished fruiting. However, if it is finished fruiting before next winter, then the follower pup shouldn't be a problem, once the spent main pstem is cut down.

Does that sound about right, guys? If they both have six leaves, now, then they should fruit before this time next year, with proper care.
