LOL I just pot them in yard dirt put them it the pond and take them in the basement in the winter. I do not trim them in winter I do not feed them I do not repot. I do not worry about fungicide. LOL in other words I do not do much at all. I started with one in 2007. In 2008 I made my own water bananas. I had 6 last winter lost one this spring outside. Took one to a good friend in Memphis in July. Hers is in her pond and is doing well. Hers had 3 pups on it. Two or three of mine out of 4 I have left has pups on them. They pup well. Ido not know if this will work for other people but it works for me. If it isn't broke don't fix it. LOL

I did forget to say I have a 100 gallon pond in the basement and 6 fish aquariums plus all kinds of plants with 9 shop lights all winter in the basement plus 10 or 12 land banana plants down there all winter too.

This is the one that I let grow in my pond until the last minute... I took it out of the pond to dry out... but left it outside until the leafs got nuked. It is recovering fast which leads me to believe the roots are very happy and established. I will definitely try this to one of each of my naners cultivars next year... if I make it that far.

I'm not sure if I want to upgrade or downgrade the pot later on, or just leave it?
Sorry Justin, I noticed this post only today.

The number of holes is immaterial, as is their size, as long as you do not place the pot
under a waterfall. What is important, is that the water can get to the hole once it
reaches the bottom of the pot. I achieve that by placing a few small rocks at the
bottom of the pot, which I then cover with pieces of fly screen for outdoor pots or
ground cover cloth for indoor pots, before I fill in the potting soil mix. The latter
keeps the soil in more securely and your catching tray more clean.

Bump.....As the end of winter comes, so will photos of banana plants roots that have been in containers for the last five months in my .........

Photo is an ae ae in its prime in a container.....next pic will be current which I will take soon of the same plant hopefully in the same position as in the older photo

Untitled

, Photo shows the plant under a 300 watt CFL.......pretty ugly..Due to the 12 height I know I could not grow this beast the way i wanted it to....

My biggest fear is this plant will terminate without giving me a pup..... plant is three years old..
Foreground are various tree ferns.
Background is 15 fishing poles hanging on my outbound 1 inch Irrigation feed.
Photo taken from a stepladder....

Tony has always been very cryptic in his comments, but lately they have become rather
incoherent. Maybe in a lame attempt to surround himself with an enigmatic aura.

I would not take his ruminations to seriously. Sometimes I think he posts anything at
all, just out of plain boredom.

No, no BS, just starting a brand new thread with with nothing but an unrelated bunch of parsley
and another giving the location of Bulgaria, which related to nothing in this forum and a photo
of a buzzer with "sound effects". - All stuff, which is very pertinent to this forum.
