So am I seeing correctly that this banana is actually putting out more than a 1.0 leaves/week ratio?

Do you feed these every week?

That's a good Q? Some say yes.. I say maybe, but the only DO I've had have a red tinge to them.. Never seen a Dwarf Orinoco produce like my CG last fall so who knows.. It could be up for debate..

On another note if that were true I think Ted (GreenEarth) would have an easy solution to selling Caligold's that are at least an Orinoco Based Banana, instead of shipping out Cavendishes.. :^)

Well I'll be eating them this year.. Hopefully I'll have plenty to make chips out of.. I feed my Banana's Triple 13, Fish Emulsion, Fruit Fuel, and Potassium Sulphate, maybe a lil Azomite in the spring..

I get triple 13 in bulk from my Farm & Garden
Fish Emulsion from HomeDepot.com by the gallon and I order 4 gallons so the box is full or it will spill cause its shipped by idiots.. :^) The gallon is a couple bucks more than the Qt will cost you in store..
Fruit Fuel & Mycorrhizae (I use it on all my plantings) from Richard
Diamond K Potassium Sulphate (0-0-50) is cheapest online @ kelp4less.com (the price includes shipping last time I looked @ it.)
