Default Hi from France

Hello! I live in Montpellier, southern France. In the spring of 2018 I bought a small banana plant in a pot (dwarf cavendish). It grew vey fast outdoors last summer, and kept growing slowly over the winter in a non-heated greenhouse. I took it outside again this spring, and it is now growing again, albeit more slowly than last summer. I suspect the pot is getting too small, but I can't really handle a bigger one. I will post some pictures. I was hoping to get a flower this summer but now I doubt it!

I don't know if you are looking for advice or not, but I would definitely transplant to the biggest pot possible, and put sticks and small logs in the bottom for decomposition

Oh yes, any advice welcome!

This is it: https://photos.app.goo.gl/Xj7bKd5rqTMUwG9U7

It's about 185 cm tall from the ground to the very top

The pot is 60 cm in diameter

If I remove it and split it in two and put one back in the same pot is it good?

Thanks!

Salut,
Le pot est un peu petit mais tu peux le laisser dedans cela ne l’empêchera pas de faire un régime, sur la photo il a l'aire de bien se porter!
Il aura juste un peu de mal à garder l'apport d'eau et engrais donc si tu peux met une soucoupe en dessous.
Le manque de place l’empêchera d'avoir un exces d'humidité en hiver.
Le rempotage est pas impératif, si tu peux met le en pot plus grand au début du printemps prochain.
Moi j'ai un dwarf orinoco plus gros d’environ un mettre soixante dans un pot de quarante litre, et il viens de me faire un régime
Je ne sais pas si tu le sait déja mais tu dans ta zone les gelés sont faibles, il y a des varietes à fruit comestible intéressante et plus résistante au froid comme les musa dwarf orinoco, dajiao, dwarf brazilian, ice cream ou encore dwarf pisang et le rajapuri.



Hi
The pot is a little bit, but you can let it be deduced that it will not prevent a diet, in the photo there is good to wear!
There is little time before the water is cooled.
The lack of space will prevent it from getting wet in winter.
The potting is not imperative, to you can pot more early next spring.
I have a dwarf or a dwarf woman, and he just made me a diet
I do not know if you already knew that you are in the zone where the frosts are weak, there are varieties with edible fruits and more resistant to the cold as the musa dwarf orinoco, dajiao, Brazilian dwarf, ice or even dwarf pisang and the rajapuri.

(I think it reads: I have a dwarf orinoco over one meter sixty in a pot of 40 L and (?) it gave me some exercise.)
