What an awesome source of info on Bananas. I've got three active blooms and was looking for some pest insight and it led me to this site. Currenty blooming; Namwah (dwarf I think), Ice cream (saw pictures of different props, time to build one for this tall monster) and just harvested Sweetheart, well it fell on my wife's garden so it got harvested. The rope tied off to a fence didn't work as planned. I like the PVC designs!!!

So on to the question placed in the wrong thread - whiteflies. Can you treat like a palm without affecting the fruit? I'll keep ignoring the situation until harvest as it required a soil drench. no real effects besides some sooty mold on a leaf here and there, nothing a little pruning can't solve?

Thanks again and looking forward to all the available information.

Sorry a little late with the welcome!

I'm guessing you are from Florida. Where? I'm in Pensacola, FL.

You'll get all your questions answered here as long as you ask!

Life - Some assembly required, As is no warranty, Batteries not included, Instructions shipped separately and are frequently wrong!

Kentucky Bourbon - It may not solve the problem but it helps to make it tolerable!

Statistics - Data that analyst twist to support the insane opinions of those that pay them.
