Default Re: Need advise with Growing Musa variegated AE AE

Spoke with my amigo who lived in the islands and had quite a few, he suggested the following:

PH 5.5 - 6.5

On level grade or a container of at least 45 gallons.

Soil drainage is KEY, must be very well drained.

.25 kg of a 6-2-12 or 3-1-6 ratio with .10 kg 3-5% magnesium bump every 75 days. double rate every 90 days.

Top dress with any quality 1.5 lbs organic compost every 90 days.

Hope this helps as I'm in the same box, but in South Florida / USA and will be
beginning myself in Spring of 2009.

Does it need a lot of sun, or partitial shade? Does potasium nitrate influance the variegation? When you over feed them do they turn green?
A lot of questions, I hope someone has the answers.
