Hi,
joined the forum yesterday and live in Sweden (unfortunatly not the best country for growing bananaplant...).
For now I am growing my plants indoors (ensete glacum, ensete ventricosum, musa velutina and some other type I cannot remeber what it was).

Reading the forum and watching photos of everyone elses bananaplants and then looking at mine I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong as my plants look alot different then everyone else... See if I can get some photos up.

WojtekS, impressiv list of bananas! Do you grow them indoors whole year or do you place them outside during the summer? If so, when do you move them outside, and when do you move them indoors again, is it depending on the temperature?

Will post pictures later today...

hey,

it sure is depending on the temperatures since bananas can't take too much cold. A single frost night may not kill a basjoo or siki.. but most of the other varitys one can grow.

It's a good choice to get the plants outside in the sun during higher temperatures and get them back inside while the weather would kill them.

And Welcome pikkenix btw

Pikkenix thank you.
Boffcheck's right. At night when the temperature is greater than 10 degrees, I issue plants outdoors and vice versa ; )

Representing the Netherlands

Been around in Musa for a long time, and although we don't have that many possibilities growning them outside year round I keep trying new species!

Currently musa ' Tibet' is one of the best for me!

Kind regards,
Remko.

Good luck and awesome collection!
