Banana's like well draining soil so they don't have to sit in Aqua, and then they will drown unless its a water banana, and doubt it is. I use 1 part cow manure, peet moss, Sand, mix in some Mycorrhizal Fungi to help the roots grow for a healthier banana :^)

I mix soil and horse manure. if you can find it without shavings it is better.my horses tend to go in one place in the pasture so I just scoop it up with the front end loader and make my beds out of it. feed the bananas a little 0-0-0-25 for potassium.
