Default Re: So-called "Goldfinger"

I walked into our local ace hardware last year, they had 2 bananas that were marked goldfinger and sweetheart. didn't look like either of mine. they looked exactly like the gran nains they usually sell.

your plant looks healthy. my goldfinger is sort of a slow grower too, bought it from a member here. by the picture yours seems to have a lot of red in the p-stem. to my understanding there are several cultivars of goldfinger.

grass clippings and leaves around the base will keep the ground moist and cooler. they will actually throw roots underneath the mulch. also cutting the lower leaves off will make it grow a bit faster. looks healthy,good luck.
