I was thinking about starting to give the bananas a little extra boost.

I soil drench my bananas with GrowMore and also spray them. Maybe its extra work for nothing but I like to feel it helps.

I never heard of such, but now that you have me reading about it... I guess I do that in the morning and evening so it doesn't burn the leaves. (Yeah I was doing it and didn't know what it was called or if it had a name) lol :^)

You do it first thing in the morning when the stomata pores are open on the leaves.

Yes!

There is a new local ordinance that prohubits Nitrogen and Phospherous fertilizer applications from June through September. I have done some Micronutrient sprays in the past, but this year I plan on doing more especially sprays that are higher in copper, and no Nitrogen.

I also apply in the mornings but when the leaves are dry! Sometimes morning dew delays the application. djmb74 is correct, it is best if the stomas are open.
