I'm new to collecting Bananas. Just started this year. Also srarted adding Tropical clumping Bamboo. I am in zone 9 and have plenty of room, lots of questions, and limited funds(like most people now days). I am looking for any guidance on where to get the healthiest plants at a fair price.

Welcome, You will find all the info you need to grow naners here. As for where to get some, I recently got several from GreenEarth Inc. Banana Plants and Banana Trees

They were having a sale--plants were about $10 each--and shipping for several was only $6.95.

PS...I like that you referred to it as 'collecting bananas' cause that's exactly what it ends up as for most people! LOL.
