Pinwheel Moved my SDC Outside

Moved Caven outside, gave him a good watering and fertilized him with Fruit Fuel. I started this plant from a 4" potted pup in July 22 of last year as a gift from my wife, so he is now 11 months old.


Taken the day I got him on July 21,2013.
His pups are now larger than this 4" pup he started from.

Thank you, Yes I am concerned about that too. If the sun gets too hot on it right away I may have to duck him just under a southern tree spot I have for him that will protect him from the high noon sun but yet let the morning and evening light to him. That dolly he is on is permanent for him so I can roll him around as needed.

You were right, it did not take long to show signs of burning, so I did move him to that southern under tree location.
And of course I had to take another shot of him while in this new photo op spot.

I put mine under a tree too, with filtered light for about a week, then move them into the sun. I have a Thai black under a tree right now, hopefully it will be able to take full sun soon, and will develop the dark color on its trunk.

After being outside all summer the plant got so big I could not bring it back in so I had to plant it in the ground and put a plastic tent around it. The winter was rough on the plant but a pup is putting out some new green leaves. i look forward to how fast it grows from the original corm.

That is awesome, I was skeptical when I read that you were leaving it out last year.

A few practical questions for you from a newbie:

How large (gallons/inches) was the pot you last had him in?
How tall had he gotten at the point you decided to plant him outdoors?
What bananas have actually born fruit for you regularly?

Thanks for posting your experiences here!

RRedBBeard it was in a 21 gallon pot and was almost 3 ft. tall and filled out quite well. In my climate zone it has never fruited. I will post another picture when it has re-filled out some.

It looked like you had it going pretty well. If you had kept it indoors, would it have become unmanageable? I ask because my space here is probably about like yours, but I don't have the option of planting outdoors. In fact, If I could get away with a 15 gallon pot, I would. I posted a question just now, trying to determine just how large/awkward these plants can become, and while I'd like very much to grow a double mahoi, maybe I'm smarter to stick with a red dwarf, or maybe 'Truly Tiny'?

Thanks for describing your experiences with this.
