Default Re: Watering bananas

Here in Phoenix, it's around 105 each day, and now I'm watering even 2 times per day. When it's really baking hot, I mist and use my sprinklers for my bananas at 6 a.m., for about an hour. Then at 3 p.m., the bananas get some shade and are misted and watered again for about 45 min. I don't know what the gph is on the microsprinklers, but it's a lot of water. The bananas seem to like it, and they're growing pretty well, about 1 leaf every 5 days. And that's without fertilizer, I wonder how many leaves it would put out if I fed them.
