Default Re: Musa Basjoo slow to start

I'm new to bananas
But most plants want the ground warm before they will really start growth
I finished my greenhouse early this year & that has been a big help
You can build a mini-greenhouse - also called a cold frame
This will help heat the ground up & keep the plant warm

The concern when doing this is they can get VERY hot
My 7x10 x 6' high greenhouse was up to 110 at ground level on a sunny 60 degree day
