This is my first banana plant, and I had logged on Google to get info about how to raise it here in MidMissouri where you don't see many of them. Happily, I did find a blood banana plant in my local nursery and couldn't resist buying it. At present it is about 36 inches tall and has beautiful dark red stripped leaves. I plant to put it in a large pot and at the base of the plant will put dark wine and green stripped coleaus. We are in Zone 5b and 6 and it will be necessary to move it inside during the winter. That is about all I know about raising banana plants, but I'm thrilled that I've found the right place to help me learn more.

Welcome to Bananas dot org Jen Lin!

Sounds like you've got the basics down. Check out the old threads as there are a lot of cold weather protection techniques in the photo galleries.

Good growing and welcome!!

Welcome Jen Lin, Sounds like a great combination of plants. Try and read through some of the old posts and check out the "wiki" to get a feel for the site. There are plenty of people here who can help you with any questions you come up with.

Welcome Jen Lin - I bet the color combination you have put together is stunning! We love to see photos of what others are doing with landscaping, planters, etc. It is not the easiest process to post photos, but once you get the hang of it....
Anyhow, glad to have you with us. Check out the Bananas Quarterly magazine in progress. Subscriptions are only $20 (it also helps spread the word!)
