Default Re: Newbie in Banana Land

I see 4 plants in that pot. The DC works well as a potted patio plant. But the pot needs to be much larger. The smaller plants can be separated/divided & repotted.


To plant in the ground, first slowly acclimate the plant to full sun or provided shading after transplanting to the ground. ... I suggest choosing a location that would provide afternoon shading from the hot sun. .... 2 reasons banana plant leaves fold down are lack of water or radiant heat of the hot sun. Misting will help cool & water the plant.
