My first attempt to grow bananas.
Hi I am quite new to the banana growing world, since I just got my first plant a few days ago. I purchased Musa Basjoo because it's the only one that can grow in WNY (Western New York). After I received the plant I read about water suckers vs sword suckers which got me worried. I bought my banana on eBay (sooo cheap) and was wondering if my banana was a dreaded water sucker or if that even mattered. As I look at most photos of people starting bananas mine looks very similar. Mine has been in the ground for 2 days and in it's container for 2 days. No new leaves yet but I think one leaf has grown. I hear people talking about 1 inch per day growth rate and I want mine to do that as well.
Anyway attached are some photos of my beautiful little M. Basjoo. I hope u can all give me some feedback.
