Default Nurseries for banana trees Orlando to Homestead??

Hi

I m going to Florida in May. I would like to buy some bananas either to keep potted or in ground depending.
So looking for places with a decent selection. I have 6 species in ground, established for 15 years: Basjoo, Sikkimensis, Ornata, 2 varieties of Itinerans, Lasiocarpa.
Be aware that Welcome to Going Bananas of Homestead, Florida! in Homestead only does mail order now.

Actually Going Bananas has stopped doing mail order and they just sell in-person out of their nursery by appointment only. If you send them an email, you can arrange an appointment. As a matter of fact, I made an appointment by email and picked up a 3 gallon blue java at the nursery at the beginning of March. They have an excellent selection and I think that they are a reputable supplier.

This is what I can add.

First if you like to thrift shop check out the thrifts along the treasure coast.
Jupiter /West Palm has some good ones.

The Florida big box stores have the most common ornamental and fruiting banana plants for sale.

Independent nurseries will have a small selection of bananas also and an incredible selection of tropicals and landscape plants.
My favorites for tropicals Weatherbee nursery in FT Pierce and Pinders nursery in Palm City.

https://pindersnursery.com

Craigslist / Florida/Miami currently has plants for sale and this is where you will find some gems if they're offered . The further south you go the more exotic the selection will be.
