Default Just got a Musa acuminata 'Veranda', best fertilizer for container growing?

Hey all, new here. I ordered this "Veranda" banana tree from Fast Growing Trees. Overall pretty happy with the size and quality, even though it was leaning a lot. I potted it upright and am just wondering what the best fertilizer would be? their site says to use organic 10-10-10 but I don't think any 10-10-10 is organic lol. Have any of you tried the Wellspring Gardens Banana Fertilizer Fuel from Amazon?

it might be a marketing name
i have never heard of it and a quick search did not find it
on the bright side you have a nice banana plant!
once it flowers you can ask for help with the true ID

Hey all, so here is an update on this banana plant. I just moved it indoors recently after having it in sunny hot outdoor weather for the season. It's grown nice and big. I do have a question, as you can see some of the leaves are brown and dry on the edges, should I cut all of those off or can I leave them? I did cut a couple off from the bottom already but was worried about taking too many off.

Also, when I first purchased this from fastgrowingtrees, their info page said it will bear fruit the first year, now I see they changed that to 2 or 3 years lol. I'm not confident it will bear at all, but still hoping.

it is best to leave them on

I got " veranda" from them to, along with someone i was talking with on facebook. our pots both said "veranda/double" so my assumption is it might just be a double mahoi.. i got it in spring 2020, has not fruited yet but it stays very short. I expect a flower (or 2 )spring next year.

Did your pot they sent it in also say double on it?

Hm I do not remember seeing "double" on the tag, I don't think it did. I will have to look and see if I still have it around somewhere.

Fingers crossed that both of ours flower and bear fruit. I'll be really bummed if it doesn't!
