Joy New Member From Texas!

Hey Everyone
I'm a new member from Texas! - Zone 9
I've been planning on setting up a backyard orchard for myself this year and Banana Plants are a big part of it! At first I was only going to get a few, but the more I've been learning and researching I've been finding everything very fascinating and now I want to get several varieties!
I can't wait to try some exotic delicious bananas!

Here is a pic of my Blue Java (Ice Cream) and Manzano.
Hua Moa is on the way and I'm planning on getting a Dwarf Nam Wah soon.

Any other variety suggestions? Cheers!

The closest one in the picture is Manzano - about 12”
The furthest one is Blue Java - ~8” or so

They came in small planters I believe they were TC

That was what I was trying to determin. At this size the plant would (or should) be in a shade house with 50% shading. Then slowly decrease the shading until ful sun. this would take about 3 or 4 months and the plant should be 2 ft to 2 1/2 ft tall by then. The plants need high humidity which would be provided by misting in the shade house.



Did your suppler stated the banana plants have been harden off for full sunlight and give you instructions to plant directly in the ground?

Unfortunately the seller didn't provide any instructions.
As far as I can see I'll have warm cloudy weather here. I can mist them daily to see if it helps.

The plant s need shading; no direct sun. ... At this stage of growth the plant is growing the corm and root system. The above ground plant growth will be slow until the corm & roots can support it. ... good Luck ...

Thanks for the insight. I have more bananas on the way and I’ll plant those in pots and let them grow for a while under my porch before I plant them on the ground.

As far as these two do you think I may be better off just leaving them on the ground and keep misting/watering? I don’t think it would be a good idea to dig them up and stress them more by continually replanting them and putting them in more shock.

I seriously doubt they survived. But did they? Im in E Texas and I do Tc plants often with a ton of trial and error to say the least. Ive lost every tc plant putting them in the ground like that.
