Pinwheel New from Ohio

Can't believe this many banana tree fans from all over the world!!

I bought 2 banana trees from Lowes this spring, not knowing even what they were or what I was getting myself into!!

They started out about 12-15 inches tall, they are now hitting my 8ft ceiling in living room. One of them is looking great, but the other is turning brown on edges and getting droopy! I have grown very attached to them and can't seem to find any detailed info on what to do with them for the winter!

If someone could direct me to some good info I would appreciate it.

Thank you in advance,
Carla Bezak

Well the luck I had with my Musa bajoo was excellent, both out of doors over winter and in the solarium. Spider mites and aphids are a problem when cultivating inside the home.

Your Ensetes will continue to grow if well watered inside your home...however you may want to stunt their growth during the winter months. The new growth accumulated from indoors will scald and blacken next year when you place them outside.

Try growing dwarf specimens unless you have the space!

Best wishes!

Thank you so much for the warm welcome!! I can see I'll be doing a lot of reading. This is my first adventure with banana trees. I am a sucker for anything different, should never go to exotic or tropical greenhouses!

Thanks again,
Carla
