Re: Search for pups (smaller species, for 3 degrees C and up)

Dwarf Orinoco grows well in cold weather, I overwintered mine at 5-10C without problems. I might have some pups for sale later this year.

Re: It's green and It's outgrowing the house!

That is definitely a tall banana plant! I would cut it back just enough for it to handle being indoors. I did that with my Ensete (mostly because of the aphids it had) and so far its still alive. Im...

Re: Albino Ensete

Yeah, typically such seedlings do not survive due to lack of chlorophyll or sunburn. Definitely keep it going and see what you can do with it though! Best of luck!

Re: Albino Ensete

That's very strange, unfortunately these things do not tend to stay this way for long. They either die because the food in the seed in finished and can't metabolise themselves due to the lack of...

Re: Edible banana species

SDC is not cold hardy at all. None of the Cavendish types are.

Re: Edible banana species

From my experience, the cold hardiest is Pisang Awak(Namwah) as well as
California Gold. My Pisang Awak endured in fact successive cold spells of
- 3℃ or 26.6F.
In addition to its hardiness, the...

Re: Edible banana species

If you're going to be moving it around at all, stick with a dwarf plant. 'Dwarf Orinoco' or 'Dwarf Namwah' are likely your best available choices. The Orinoco is probably going to be a little...

Re: Edible banana species

I'll chime in and say the California gold is probably the cold hardiest. Flowering at about 6 ft or so.I don't know how hardy the SDC would be but think it could certainly fruit and flower in a pot...

Re: Edible banana species

Depends upon the size of your pot. I'd say 'Orinoco' or 'Ice Cream' if you have a really big pot. Otherwise go for a dwarf cultivar such as 'Dw. Orinonco', 'Raja Puri', or 'California Gold'.
