Default Finally I planted my bananas!

As I writed some weeks ago, I finally found some hard to find var. of banana plants for the Italian Market:
Belle, Dwarf Brasilian, Misi Luki, Dwarf Double Mahoi, Mona Lisa and Zan Moreno.

As some of you kindly adviced me, I waited patiently some time for planting them...but now it was surely the right time!...
:-)

Their pics...

Very nice collection!

Like I was telling Jo in another thread - soon you'll go from watching a new leaf per day in your collection to a new pup per day in your collection!
I'm yet to reach the new bunch per day status but I'm hard at work to get there!

The above shown var. "Belle" and "Misi Luki", have more yellowing leaves than the others. Do you think it is normal, or it depends from a nutritional deficiency, or maybe becouse they had more hot temperatures (they are in a south facing location...)?

Default Re: Finally I planted my bananas!

Here my ending season banana report for you:

Dwarf Brasilian:
It was the most surprising one: comparing with the others, it was growing double in velocity, vitality and robustness. Same for its babies: 3 beautifully 35 45 cm tall plants, with nice pink reflex on the bottom face of their leaf and some violet stripes on the top faces.



Dw. Brasilian zoom on the little babies

Misi Luki:
Not too much bad and nor too much good impression until now! But I have big expectations on its fruits!... It has not (togheter to FHIA-02 Mona Lisa one) the generousity of gifting me a borning of a little banana plant. Maybe it was too much exopsed to our hot and dry mediterranean climate. Also if I
helped it with regular watering, Misi Luki and Belle one becomed yellowing. Anyway it seems were of little help some applications of iron and other mineral traces.


Belle:
Almost same considerations of Misi Luki, but at least has ended with a little nice baby of 6 cm!!


FHIA-02 Mona Lisa:
Non special results: strangely remained more little than the dwarf ones (Brazilian, Double Mahoi and 'Zan Moreno'), and not borning of little plants.


Mona Lisa very little progress

Dwarf Double Mahoi:
It was another nice surprice: maybe becouse I know it is very rare and particular, I was convinced it should have bad growth. Instead it was growing very healthy and with good vitality. Wonderful the foliage and the almost dark pseudostem rendering! And, the more, 3 little plants 6 30 cm tall is
satisfatory no?



Dwarf Zan Moreno:
A truly banana for potting: little, nice foliage with some violet stripes on the top faces.And a welcome to its almost 5 cm tall.




A view with (in progress) "Comune di Sicilia", Dw. Double Mahoi and Dw. Brasilian.


Now it is two weeks of uncommon november cold weather her in Sicily (Italy), and I covered the ground with some mulch and dry leaf.
Do you think I need to protect more them, at least the baby of few cm tall?

Hey Francesco,

wonderful plants you have there!
I live in Germany and it is not possible for me to plant my dessert Musas into the garden. I have to take Musa basjoo and Musa sikkimensis to plant them outside.
I think you don't have to protect your plants till it is freezing.

Greetings Oliver
