Talking banana newbie

Hi, I'm Alison. My "hobby" for good or for bad is collecting seeds from tropical fruits I've eaten or from any interesting plant I see while on vacation. So I have lots of tropical/subtropical fruits growing in my Minnesota basement. A few to mention are cherimoya, canistel, blue lilly pily, mango, citrus, etc.... I had a banana (don't remember what kind) a few years ago. The first year I overwintered it in its pot under lights and it came through just fine. Then I put it in the ground for its second summer and dug it up and repotted it for winter. It rotted. Very sad; I rarely lose a plant.

I'm ready to try again and with all the useful info I've found on this site I'm sure I'll be better at it. Thanks.

Hi Alison

Get your hands on some more banana plants and give them another chance. Most kinds are pretty easy once they get going!
Apologies in advance if I am slow to reply to your PM. I suggest posting in the forums for support if you need something urgent.
