Default Best dwarf banana to grow indoors?

Hi, so I want to grow dwarf banana indoors with grow lights since where I live there isn't enough sunlight. I need it to be at most like 2.1 meters (around 7 feet) and I want it to be as tasty as possible. And I wonder if anyone would even ship to Latvia which is north east europe.

Research Dwarf Brazilian or raja puri. I prefer their taste over dwarf namwa or dwarf Orinoco which should also be Available over there. Good luck!

Banana plants grown indoors are really difficult and hard to maintain.
Trying to obtain some sort of positive growth for fruit is difficult to do.

Azarashi-

I would look into something like a dwarf red- they are capable of making decent tasting fruits, but give them as much light as possible. Another even smaller option is a super dwarf cavendish.

How big is your space...
Dwarf plants are not really apartment sized.
The plants have a large footprint and can be difficult to grow indoors.

To learn about lighting requirements for the plant check out cannibis forums and Youtube for some great suggestions.
Lighting and indoor growing techniques for cannibis and bananas are about the same and there is much more great information in cannibis forums.
Many ideas can be taken away to help you grow your plant(or any plant) indoors.

The best dwarf banana to grow indoors is the Dwarf Red (Musa basjoo). It bears fruit in about 18 months, and it's almost impossible to kill. I like this plant because it requires no fertilization or spraying. The leaves are large enough that they act as natural shade for other plants grown below them; there is even a hypothesis that these "shade-giving" leaves can help Superiorpapers protect against sun damage.
