Re: 2018 Banana Patch: Pensacola, Florida
Its really satisfying to achieve forward progress on development of my banana patch. Getting a flower and seeing a green banana bunch hanging from the plant will be awesome. Plus confirmed ID over the next couple months.
I hope with some of the tricks (extra K, bunch pruning, bell pruning, bagging, etc.) I have learned from the more experienced members combined with some old fashioned luck will result in some mature fruit. Now the game is afoot and the clock is ticking! Very exciting!

Slp0100, I have a heater on my pool but I don't use it in the heart of winter. I use it on the shoulders (Oct, Nov & March, April) to top the temp up. However the pool probably does help the bananas during the extreme low temps a bit as it doesn't freeze.
