I just bought a saba and guess which banana isnt growing... Its my Musa Saba! But the past few days have been in the 70s F here (last night didnt even get below 70F!) and my saba is beginning to grow again and all my other bananas are also. The weather will be cooling down to the mid 50sF so they will be stalling again.
The only banana that is growing well even when its cool outside is Musa velutina for me.

Good luck!

By drowing the lines with marker between steam and leaf, like this:

no line movement - no new growth.

Actually the only one that has slowed down a little is SDC .... the others are still actively growing...

My bananas are growing like crazy again! Saba almost grew a full leaf (in 4 days) my ice cream banana and basjoos are also all working on there leaves and the only one that isnt growing is my Thai black and that one was barely growing during the summer anyway. Cool down coming, but no frosts in the forecasts so looking good for now! I cant believe its already almost November!
