I took out the pink lemon and potted it so I would have room for two more bananas.

Looking great Kaczerkat, and congratulations on taking the steps to grow them in a greenhouse, that's dedication! How tall is your greenhouse?

Pisang Ceylon can get very tall, but I suppose you can cut down the pstems if they get too tall. Downside is less leaves, which means possibly less bananas will fill in. The plants are so tall, they barely fit in my outdoor site LOL

Rajapuri is pretty short and fat, but I've seen 3' tall greenhouse grown plants with some fruit, so if the root space is restricted, they won't take up too much space. Same can be said about dwarf cavendish. When you let them get to their fullest size potential outdoors, even some of the dwarf plants can take up an incredible amount of space because those leaves get massive!

Anyways, thanks for the progress reports, been enjoying them!

Thanks for the kind words meizzwang! Seeing you do yours is a huge inspiration although yours are outside-outside. The greenhouse is 7 or 7.5 feet tall. I realize what you're saying about the leaves. Last year there were only a few that had to be chopped in half. The pisang ceylon last year got to about 5 1/2 feet of stem and the leaves seemed to work themselves out. I planted further in away from the side walls this year and will be adding heating cables in the fall.

Looking good Matt!......



Pisang Ceylon definitely it's a fast grower and a heavy pupper!......Mine is approx. 10 ft. tall and keeps pushing out, opening new leaves faster than before!.....Very beautiful Nana plant!.....



Awesome job!....Keep it up!

So the Pisang Ceylon was chopped back to 3 feet. This should help over winter.
The heating cable came, not sure when I should put that in? Oct -Nov?

Here was one of the newest leaves. Somehow it unfurled
