Default Re: Musa Acuminata - Overpotting and light

or is the 16 inch pot the final pot size?
the smaller pot may also help to not overwater during the winter

a pic would help though to see if it is bursting at the seams and really needs a transplant
I'm having some trouble loading any images up, otherwise I would put one up. Currently it is about 2 feet tall, and has been giving out a new leaf every week, progressively bigger in size. There are 3 pups in the pot, one of which is much larger than the other two, but the main stem is about 2 inches from the side of the pot.

I'm intending to keep it as a houseplant, but may put it outside for some time in the summer. The 16 inch pot will be the final pot, I'm hoping to maximum its size as I think it would look great when over a metre tall.
