General purpose Triple 10 through 19 all work well and there are some forum members that use this for their bananas in the growth stage.

I do use generic water soluble fertilizers like Miracle grow(24-8-16) also.

These two fertilizers are to be used with caution and understanding that plant death will occur is misused.
46-0-0 urea for color enhancement and size.
21-0-0 ammonium sulfate for color enhancement and size.

All above fertilizers work very well for landscape plantings and general lawns feeding also.

Fellas on the forum frequently use a 16-8-24 (or close)ratio for fruiting bananas.

There are also some good threads about fertilizer use and what brands and ratios to use for fruiting bananas on the forum.
Thank you very much!

Hey Luis - I noticed Helen's Hybrid is on your list of plants and I am just curious what has your experience with it been so far?

Hi. So far so good. She is still a bit small but growing on ground and survived last winter.

Nice, thank you. I am definitely interested in periodic updates on her progress when/if you get the chance.
