Hiya Newbie from Cal's Central Valley

Hi! I'm Mike. I live in Woodland (nr Sacramento) in California. I'm completely new to trying to grow bananas. I have a musa velutina seedling potted on top of a heat pad in my greenhouse window and am thinking about purchasing a Helen's Hybrid plant. My climate is Zone 9-typically the lowest temperature of the winter is 25f give or take 2 degrees. Any basic advice would be appreciated; I'm completely unknowledgeable. My other gardening interests lie with other subtropical fruits and with flowering ornamentals.

Welcome jonquildaddy!!!

I share your interest in "subtropical fruits!" I grow many as well as banana hybrids, and a few "species" bananas.

Best wishes and welcome aboard!!!
