Hello peoples! I received the Dwarf Cavendish gift today, and my experiment with bananas has begun. It's potted up in the 20" pot, with soil and fertilizer regimen recommended by Richard. Lot's of room in there to grow! Is going to receive at least 5-6 hours of direct sunlight through the fall, and here in SoCal will remain in the pot over the winter. I have it sitting on top of, but not in some pea gravel in the drip tray, so that I know when the water is running out the bottom.
Not a banana, but I love to show off my 70 year old jade, who will be keeping a watchful eye on the new recruit:
Wish me luck!
