Default Florida Variegated ?

I bought this as a Variegated Florida Banana, and I'm ready to plant it.

depending where you are. partial sun would probably be the best. here in florida full sun burns up the pups.

It really should depend on the quality and amount of roots your plant has and it's root pressure. In the tropics we grow all our variegated bananas in full sun and don't have a problem with the white areas drying. The plants perform better with full sun.

It looks to me like an Ae Ae..... depends on your zone and microclimate where to plant it. If you're in sub tropical area I would plant in an area that gets morning sun and dappled afternoon if at all possible.

lord I wish I would have moved to the tropics when I had the chance. here winter kills most of them back and they had to start over again.

I have had trouble with my sumatrana crosses until I put 50% shade cloth over them to start them up again.



this is a pic of a maoli tc I took out of the package and put in the ground. morning and afternoon sun. its almost big enough now to remove the shade.

I'm in South Florida about 100 miles north of Lauderdale a few miles from the beach. I do get a lot of wind. I was thinking of planting it under a large oage tree 100+ years old, and it would get full morning sun and partial sun for the rest of the afternoon. If you have any similar ones for sale, let me know. Thanks.

I'm not familiar with an oage tree but if it's similar to a Charlie Brown Christmas tree you should be fine. This cultivar produces phenomenal fruit and of all the short cycle diploids I grow this is the best tasting plus it's fruiting cycle is only about 3 weeks in the tropics. It is however sensitive to sunlight and if it doesn't get enough it grows slowly and can produce very small bunches or even bunches of entirely male fingers. I've learned to be mindful of what I plant next to them if it's a triploid or tetraploid I'll increase the spacing to assure they get adequate sunlight. I think once the all-green version of this plant gets in the hands of more growers it's popularity will skyrocket.

Finally an extreme short cycle true dessert banana.

OK, I'll try to make some available ASAP.

Had a typo. I meant to say large Oak Tree, probably 200 years old with lots of space underneath the canopy. I was thinking about putting it near the edge, where it gets full sunlight in the morning and partial in the afternoon.
