Greenhouse bananas
 
Starting a new thread for 2018
Hey guys, Since the last chance of frost/cold is in early Feb I still can't believe that last year I didn't plant any bananas until mid May. This year I'm changing that. Planted the first one yesterday, Dwarf cavendish.
March 30

3 1/2 feet.

Looked like it was far enough while the plants were small. Not so much. Plants are pushing on the plastic all over the place. I also thought 12 feet high was tall enough. Wrong again. When your plants get too tall I will explain how to "dwarf" them to keep the height manageable. I am trying it on a test plant now. My tall plants will all get "dwarfed" to fruit at a lower height.

BTW, close to a wall seems to be much less of a problem than close to a roof. The leaves will bend and flex for a wall. They will break on the roof.

Looking great Matt. I got my own pisang ceylon last year and i underestimating how colourful the foliage underneath and p-stem are, its a beautiful banana, how have you found your dwarf red faired over winter months indoors.

Keep up the good work my friend, looking forward to seeing the updates.

Thanks mushtaq, they are nice right! and seem to pup well. The dwarf red got some decent growth over winter even though it was never repotted. Hoping your plants are/will look just as healthy!

I forgot how much water they take. They weren't growing but the problem is fixed. New leaves are out & it's already in the upper 80's low 90'sF.

This one turned out to be a dwarf orinoco


Here is the newest addition from Mark, the raja puri

Matt,
They look good. Even my Banana plants in the Arboretum are starting to put out Pups. Hopefully I will see Flowers this summer.

Not too exciting but the basjoo survived another year with no protection. After I thought it was a goner (frost killed it back to the ground) I cleared out the GH &shut the power off for a week or two during the coldest part of Jan. Today I noticed the pup. pics soon!
