Some time ago, however, i did read something about the...

Re: Dwarf Namwah cold hardiness

One more update. No pics this time.
Banana appear to be growing on all the stems.
Bigger stems are the slowest recovering from damage, while smaller ones appear already healthy.
The stems with the...

Hardy subacid-type banana?

Here in Italy you find in grocery store one and just one type of banana: cavendish.

Honestly? I don't have the slightest idea.
The D. Orinoco should be a tiny bit hardier than the d. namwah. Still, it managed to die, despite being in pretty much the same place. My best guess is,...

Re: Dwarf Namwah cold hardiness

I see what you mean. Acute and extended damage are definitively two different things. I think that the key point is to have at least some daily temperature above 32F. I think that ice started forming...

Re: Dwarf Namwah cold hardiness

Hi hydroid, I think it's a great banana too. Not to mention how well it handles the lack of water/dry stress.
