Default Re: high color

i have 5 but i live in tn. ive only had mine for a month or so and they are all in the house. ill give it a try.( im new here too) if im wrong someone please correct me. everything that i have read so far...leads me to believe that if its really hot and its in a pot you might want to give it some shade during the hottest part of the day.( move it under a bigger tree, or to the nort side of your house) you might have to check it more often to see if it needs more water. if it is in the ground you might have to provide it with a shade screen. and still check it often to see if it needs water. that is the take on what i have read. there is a page in the banana wiki just for the high color mini musa. and it has a lot of info on them. i read it a lot. hope this was a help. i know that nanaman has some planted outside his house and he lives in fl. he has pics in the gallery.
