Default Just received a banana plant for my birthday!

The plant is from my daughter who is very into bananas and got me excited about them too. It has been a week and I have seen a few inches of growth already. It came at 15 inches tall, and has grown two new leaves. It is a dwarf cavendish, and I am anxious for it to grow and produce fruit. I know it may take a year, but I am looking forward to it.

I have seen three inches of growth in the first two weeks. It is in my preschool classroom, in front of a window where the temps are never below 65.

When I got my first two last January, I was as excited as you and kept measuring several times a day. I found I was getting growth rates of 1/16" per hour on the cigars. Wait until you put it in the ground!

Putting it on a heating mat will help as well, as its feet will never get chilly.
