Re: Timeline of Fruiting for Each Strain of Banana
When you guys are talking "Perfect Conditions", do you feel that growing indoors under a 600 Watt HID lighting system, better or worse than conditions in say Florida or Hawaii?
I am growing a Gran Nain and 2 Dwarf Cavendish, and the Gran Nain has really taken off, putting out a new leaf every 3-5 days. I am in Central Ohio, but will be keeping them inside under Grow Lights 12-14 hours a day, 75 degrees, with added humidity. In your estimation, are these conditions under Artificial Lighting, better than outdoor situations in Tropical Areas?
Personally, I am hoping for fruit in 12-16 months. I am currently worried about the size of Pots I should use as they grow. Any suggestions from the experts?
