Just from the looks

Im guessing its one of these
CAVENDISH

Both the Dwarf (5 ft.) and Giant (7-8 ft.) varieties produce wonderful tasting fruit as does the others in the Cavendish sub-group. A vigorous grower with wide green leaves. One of the more common grown varieties in the USA.

Or RAJAPURI

A very popular sturdy plant originating in India and becoming a favorite around the world. Due to the rapid growth and delicious taste of these 3/4 size fruit as well as cool tolerance they have won the hearts (and taste buds) of thousands.

Some varieties will never fruit in a container because the roots like to grow out and stay rather shallow. If it's a dwarf variety you may see a flag leaf soon!

Banana's phenostages are correlated based on total accumulated number of WARM hours rather than calendar days or months. Hot hours like those exceeding 95 deg F are not also counted, likewise anything below 55 deg F are not counted. Those from 55 to 65 are partially counted. Thus it may take 7 years in your area to accumulate the proper growing hours provided it did not die back to the ground during that period due to cold or other acts of nature.

I have not seen extensive research on these types of phenological correlation with growing degree hours done for bananas. This is the opposite of chilling hours done extensively for temperate crops.

potasium nitrate should help speed things along. For bananas grown in the ground a cup of 6-2-12, potassium nitrate fertilizer should be fed to the bananas each week. The University of Florida recommends bimonthly applications of 2%-3% magnesium, a necessary element of fertilizer for bananas. Routinely increase dosage to 5lbs to 6lbs during the flowering and fruiting season, which should begin within a year and a half.

If you are going to keep your plant in a pot, I'd put it in a larger pot than the one you have it in....maybe a 35 gallon size pot.
