Default Dwarf Orinoco and Dwarf Cavendish pictures

Here are some pictures of my banana plants;

Dwarf Orinoco taken June 10th (around 5ft)


Same Dwarf Orinoco taken July 31st (+6ft)


Dwarf Cavendish (+3ft)


Any tips or input on trying to get these Bananas to fruit? The bananas are in decently sized containers +15 gallon and are very healthy looking.

I was thinking of upping the size of the container to 30 gallon plastic barrels. However I am still not sure if that will even spur fruit development. I noticed in a recently posted thread, a fellow dwarf orinoco container grower got his to flower. I was thinking maybe I was feeding my banana to much nitrogen and not enough P and K?
