Joy Polinators

Question about male and female flowers.

I am growing plants in an indoor arboretum.
Do I need to have some sort of pollinators (butterfly/bee) to cross pollinate from male to female flowers for the bananas to form?
I have several species growing in one enclosed area. Is there a chance of cross pollination between plants?

I know, na´ve questions, but just want to get it right.

Default Re: Polinators

I'm still a newbie here, but I believe most bananas are cloned and will simply grow, flower, and fruit as long as they have the right conditions. Pollination should not be necessary; at least with the variants I am familiar with.

Most varieties of banana won't cross pollinate and do not need pollination to make bananas. Some do, however. If you planted them from seed, they will need pollination, I believe.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.
