Vickie, all the pictures from you are of Bananas in a very infantile stage. The bananas I've grown ... some of which are the same cultivar ... attain 8-10" diameter at the base and 11-14 feet height before they flower or fruit. So I agree that bananas can be grown in water culture (with aerated water) at a young stage, but what do you do when they approach the juvenile stage?

I would postulate that it follows a theory similar to a hiker wearing boots that get waterlogged and causes trench foot, as opposed to one who spends almost all of their time in water wearing sandals. I suspect it has to do with the waterlogged dirt not being able to breathe, as opposed to water that lets the plant take in air and nutrients without being suffocated. Even though there is dirt in the planter, it is probably suspended like quicksand. Just a guess though.

Richard I have had bananas grow 10 or 12 ft but I am zone 6 missouri I am fighting a whole different zone then you for tropicals. I have also had bananas on trees before. But they do not have long enough to ripen. I have bananas in water all winter in my basement setting in several inches of water no water circulating all winter. I have done this since 2007. As a matter of fact they do better then my bananas in pots not setting in water.
