Re: Highgate always has 4 leaves

If you wan't any chance of fruit as well as more leaves maintained (which are related), you will need to put it in a much larger pot, however, although it a "dwarf" that is relative to it's taller...

Re: Can I grow edible bananas in NE Ohio?

Anything is possible with enough attempts and money, but it won't be easy. You're much better off just growing dwarf varieties in large pots and bringing them in and out. Planting in the ground and...

Re: Pot Size and Time To Fruit Goldfinger

If you don't need to move it around, and you have the physical space, you're better off making a raised bed on top of your existing soil, no matter how unsuitable you think it is. It can be as simple...

Very normal, most banana plants are not pure green, there are normally varying levels and types of pigmentation on many parts of the plant.

Re: What happened to my bananas?

Your problems aren't related to cutting the flower bud off. That plant was very unhealthy before flowering, and clearly made a very small bunch on a weak and small plant to begin with, and also looks...

Re: Dwarf Brazilian in full sun in east bay area CA

If there is sufficient water, full sun shouldn't be an issue. Make sure to mulch generously with wood chips around the base to help retain moisture and keep the soil cooler as well. If it's extremely...

Re: Banana Verieties / Species - Wild VS Patented

Very few bananas have patents on them, you can search the US patent office database for some. Wild species should not be able to have patents on them, some selections of wild species do, but the...

Re: How can you eat banana seeds?

In small amounts they won't hurt you, but they aren't pleasant. There are medical reports of children getting intestinal blockages from eating too many seeded bananas. Traditionally, especially in...

Re: Do banana plants do so much better in direct sun than shade?

Anything less than full sun will slow down the plants. They can still do fine with some shade, but all things being equal more sun is better.

Re: Wilting Banana - Help!

Well, the seedling does not appear to be a banana at all. If you got them off the internet from some random source chances are it was not a banana at all, most are fake.

Re: Fruit ID?

It could be FHIA-03 ("Sweetheart"), but that is why I think it's necessary to see more photos of the plant, basing IDs off fruit alone can be quite difficult.

The type of Maoli I was thinking of for...

Re: ID and question about "edible"

The male bud is very different, even on the some of the Goldfinger off-types which tend to have a different bud shape than standard Goldfinger. However, they are somewhat closely related as 'Raja...

Re: ID and question about "edible"

In almost all cases if any fruits are ripening then the whole bunch is done forming and should be harvested. Towards the bottom of the bunch, the hands tend to be smaller and often with a number of...
