I recommend you throttle back on the phosphate. The HD brand "Vigoro" Citrus & Avocado Food is an above-average option for bananas:

Vigora 20 lb. Citrus and Avocado Plant Food

That is a 7 gallon pot and thus the rhizomes from the mother corm are hitting the pot walls and sending up pups. At this stage of growth it should be in at least 15 gallon. Personally I'd put it in a 25 gallon black nursery pot and invest in a dolly.

what does too much phosphate do to the plant? i haven't ever heard that before.. genuinely curious. and also it is in a massive pot about 4 feet tall.. the banana plant just makes it look tiny! definitely bigger than 7 gal haha

Party Re: Musa Aeae White Variegated

I lied the pot is only 2 feet tall. It's still massive though.. no way the corm is as wide as the pot already though haha I have seen them in nurseries (same height) in 7 gal pots and they were all thriving

*Update.. just measured and the pot diameter is 30".. no way the corm is that big lol it's shooting up pups because it's a happy momma corm

10-10-10 is an ok general purpose. Something with a lower ratio of P to N and K would be better. And in my opinion, the Fruit Fuel formula I designed is ideal.

Thanks, that is a big pot. If the top diameter is 30" then I gather those vertical fence railings are 5" apart?

I agree, but rhizomes from the corm could easily have reached the walls of the pot by now.
